Get set for world’s biggest cuppa
THE first World’s Biggest Coffee Morning took place in 1991, and Macmillan Cancer Support has seen the day raise more than £60 million pounds over the last 21 years.
Just 2,600 people registered to hold an event in 1991, a figure which increased to 51,000 for last year’s coffee morning when a record £10 million was raised.
The morning started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle, but donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process.
Just £25 pays for a Macmillan nurse to support a family affected by cancer for one hour, £181 could pay for a Macmillan social worker or family support worker for a day and £370 could pay for the hire of a room for a year so a self-help and support group could hold regular meetings.
Meetings in the area include:
l Stanhope Hall, 10am-12pm. Tombola and raffle.
l 35 High Street, Tattershall, 10am. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
