It’s Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, where people across the UK hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer. In 2013, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million.
Whats it all about?
Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. And as treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. The money raised at the coffee mornings will help make sure no one has to face cancer alone, from the moment they’re diagnosed, through treatment and beyond.
Coinadrink will be enjoying a coffee and a slice of cake, or two, to support this excellent charity!
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.
Everybody loves to get involved with these meetings, because it’s a chance to share a cup of the good stuff with new people as well as help fund a fantastic cause.

Earlier in the year Coinadrink celebrated its 50th anniversary by hosting a Party Night at the National Motor Cycle Museum. The charity chosen as the beneficiary of the evening was Macmillan Cancer Support. The evening was a great success and the various fund raising activities on the night were very generously supported.
A cheque for £5826.09, the proceeds of the evening, was presented by Roger Williams, Managing Director of Coinadrink to Eloise Davidson who received it on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support. Eloise thanked everybody at Coinadrink for the magnificent amount they had raised. She went on to say ‘Macmillan together with charities generally had suffered a slowdown in donations during the recession so this cheque was very welcome’.
Roger Williams commented that ‘the company was very appreciative of the work Macmillan Cancer Support carried out. The families of some Coinadrink staff had been very grateful for the support they had received, at some challenging times in their family lives, from the Macmillan nurses. Roger Williams went on to say ‘he was pleased that the evening had raised a significant amount of money to help them carry on with their good work’.
