The Macmillian Coffee Morning At GottaBe!

31st August 2021
 / 

GottaBe! will be helping Macmillan raise money once again in their fight against cancer, by holding our very own Macmillan Coffee Morning on the 24th September. As a charity that is close to home for so many, we are looking forward to welcoming you all and raising as much money as possible!

Macmillian Coffee Morning

The Macmillan Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest annual fundraising event, in 2020 they raised £10,082,117 and they are looking to top that this year. It all started in 1990 as a small affair with a simple idea. Since then, Macmillan Coffee Morning has raised over £290 million.

The idea is simple, invite guests into your office, home, garden, tent or any other location it doesn’t matter. You just need to share cakes, coffee, tea, and conversation and raise money to help battle cancer. Anyone can take part, all you need to do is set a date, receive your Coffee Morning kit, and then get baking!

How Can Your Money Help?

£71 could help run an Online Community forum for over 3 hours. Typically, that would give nearly 198 people affected by cancer both emotional and practical support.

£100 could pay for a person affected by cancer to attend a health and wellbeing event, providing them with skills to improve the management of these areas in their lives.

£350 could pay for a Macmillan grant that helps a family affected by cancer take a holiday and enjoy precious time together.

£606 could pay for a Macmillan Social Care Worker for a week, helping patients, family members, and carers manage the social and practical problems of living with cancer.

£1135 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a week, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical, and emotional support.
