The MacMillan Coffee Morning is the charites biggest fundraising event, and each year members of the general public get to host their very own morning which predominantly takes place in the UK where MacMillan operates. The donations received for the coffee mornings go towards MacMillan’s fantastic cancer services.
In 2013, MacMillan received a total donation of £20 million from around 154,000 people.
