Calling all Macmillan Coffee Morning organisers!

24 Aug 2018

We're compiling a round-up of Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning events around campus - get yours on the list

Macmillan Coffee Morning

The popular event is being held this year on Friday, 28 September.  If you're hosting or organising an event on campus, email and we can let colleagues know how they can support your event, by either baking or indulging!

The Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.  People all over the UK host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone over £27 million was raised and together we can make this another successful year.

The Macmillan charity understands how cancer can affect people’s whole lives – health, money, family, job; everything. And, after more than 100 years of caring, they understand that the most important thing is to treat people as individuals, not patients.

Here at the University, we have our own peer support group for people affected by cancer, organised by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team.  Anyone who has been impacted by cancer in any way - as a sufferer, as a carer, or simply as a friend - can be a member.  If you wish to be added to their confidential contact list, please email
