WORLD BIGGEST COFFEE MORNING – FRIDAY 30th SEPTEMBER for MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT…

World Biggest Coffee Morning – Friday 30th September 2022 MacMillan Cancer Support.

Join MacMillan on Friday 30th September for Coffee Morning. Sign up to host, invite your guests and get together to raise money for people living with cancer. Whatever your reason, it’s a great one.

It’s never too later to join in and help MacMillan raise funds for MacMillan Nurses and people suffering from cancer by having a coffee morning. They have two kits to choose from to help your event go with a bang.

Choose from two kits: the classic with bunting, balloons and a tablecloth, or our lighter kit with less paper and no plastic.

Whatever your reason to host, your support has the power to raise vital funds for people living with cancer. The official coffee morning date is 30 September, but you can hold yours whenever you like.

The MacMillan’s Coffee Morning is their biggest fundraising event to support people living with cancer.

People all over the UK host their own Coffee Morning and donations raised on the day are made to Macmillan.

A Coffee Morning can be whatever you want it to be. It could be at home, on your driveway, in a hall or online, whatever suits you best. You can hold a garden get-together and throw a barbeque, treat your colleagues to some homemade bakes, or even get together with friends for a takeaway.

In 2021, they raised over £11 million and hope to top that this year.

The first Macmillan Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, that they did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £290 million for Macmillan.

Having a Coffee Morning is the perfect chance to catch up over a cuppa and a slice of something delicious for a great cause.

One in two of us will face cancer, and the money you raise at your Coffee Morning will help everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.

MacMillan is proud to have M&S as their headline partner for the 13th year running and delighted that Costa Coffee will be joining them as another headline partner this year to make Coffee Morning even bigger and better for 2022! We’re also excited to welcome back their official sponsor Betty Crocker – with their help you too can bake a difference.

WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR BRITISH CAKES?..

 

 Welsh cake – A traditional Welsh snack which is made from flour, sultanas, raisins and currants.


French Fancy – A very British iced sponge cake topped with buttercream and fondant icing.

Fat Rascal – A rough domed-shaped type of cake, similar to a scone, made with currants and candied peel.


The Victoria sponge – was named after Queen Victoria who favoured a slice of sponge cake with her afternoon tea.


Lemon Drizzle – A classic sponge cake made in many parts of England for Easter Sunday.

Bakewell tart – Bakewell pudding (a puff pastry and almond paste delicacy) is thought to be made as a mistake by the cook of Derbyshire landlady Mrs Greaves who misunderstood her instructions.


Battenburg – it has a distinctive check-patterned marzipan-covered cake that is alternately coloured pink and yellow.

Eccles cake – A small, round cake filled with currants and made from flaky pastry with butter and can sometimes be topped with demerara sugar named after the English town of Eccles in Manchester.


Jaffa Cake  – An orange-flavoured snack which is either a cake or a biscuit.


Chelsea bun – Made of a rich dough flavoured with lemon and cinnamon and rolled into a square spiral shape, which was first created in the ’18th Century’, at a Bun House in London.

Christmas Cake – The most famous British fruitcake must be the Christmas Cake. No other cake is so laden with rich dried fruits and spices. This cake is eaten only at Christmas and the rest of the year is reserved for a slightly lighter, yet still rich fruit cake and Brack, a fruitcake not just in Ireland but loved in Yorkshire too.
