27th September 2013 plays host to Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and you’re all invited! In 2013 you helped raise £15million, and Sale and Altrincham combined contributed a fantastic £24,950. That was a great total,  enough to fund a Macmillan information centre for 2 months – a vital service. This year we’re hoping that with your help we can raise even more to make sure that no-one in Sale and Altrincham has to face cancer alone. In Greater Manchester 35 people are diagnosed with Cancer each day. But Macmillan Cancer Support are there to help those in need every step of the way – in Greater Manchester you are never more than a mile from Macmillan information, and the funds you raise can keep these vital services going.

And the appeal of the coffee morning is that it’s so simple! All you have to do is sit down for coffee and a cake with your friends – what’s not to like? Once you register you get a free pack sent out to you with everything you need to make your event a success , including invitations, cake flags, balloons, a table cover and more! It’s really easy – all you need to do is provide the drinks and cakes!

Fundraising manager for Sale and Altrincham, Amy Lewis said “We were really impressed with so many great coffee mornings last year which made a fantastic contribution to the new record raised nationally. This year we’d love to see even more people having fun at their coffee morning, whilst knowing they’re raising vital funds to help Macmillan support people all over Sale and Altrincham”

So what are you waiting for? It doesn’t matter where you do it, you just have to get the kettle on for Macmillan!
