Make more of your Coffee Morning with Clothes Aid’s Bags of Support

Are you getting ready for Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event of the year? People across the UK are busily requesting their free coffee morning kits and trialling recipes for delicious treats to complement a good cup of coffee because on the 26th September, Macmillan will host the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

side-image-wbcmClothes Aid is Macmillan’s official clothing collection partner and has proudly raised over £500,000 from the great British public’s quality cast offs (and love the fact that charities benefit from what could otherwise end up in the bin). This coffee morning, Clothes Aid suggests an easy way to raise even more money to help make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

As well as bringing scrummy cakes and loose change to buy refreshments, they’d like you to ask your guests to clear out their wardrobes and bring a bag of unwanted clothing to your coffee morning event. You could even offer a prize for the most garish item donated! It’s that simple, all you need do is make prior arrangements for a Clothes Aid driver to collect from your venue and they’ll turn your donations into much needed funds for Macmillan.

Since 1991, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has raised over £113 million for people affected by cancer.  This money is more crucial than ever as the number of people living with cancer in the UK is set to double from 2 million to 4 million by 2030. Macmillan provides practical, emotional, financial and medical support to people affect by cancer and their families so that no one has to face cancer alone. You can help.

Last year the event raised a record £20 million, let’s help make this year’s total even higher.

Look out for the Macmillan coffee morning reminder flyer dropping through your letterbox along with a Macmillan collection bag throughout August. But don’t despair, if you can’t host a coffee morning or get to one near you, remember that you can still support Macmillan all year round with clothes donations through Clothes Aid.

Here’s to a brew, cheers!
