In the run up to Macmillan Cancer Support’s Coffee Morning on 24th September, Nestlé have been championing the charity’s flagship fundraiser through a nationwide campaign, donating 10p from every jar of Nescafé Original 95g PMP £2.99 sold to ensure Macmillan can continue to do whatever it takes for people living with cancer.
Nestlé have also launched a nationwide roadshow that will see their Nescafé Original van visiting a total of 19 Unitas Wholesale member depots throughout August and September, encouraging sign ups and boosting donations for Macmillan’s Coffee Morning. During their visits, the Nescafé team will be giving away cups of Nescafé Original, treats and other goodies in a bid to raise vital funds to ensure Macmillan can continue to deliver the services that people living with cancer desperately need, now and in the future.
On Tuesday 24th August, the Nescafé van made a pit stop at the Unitas Wholesale Central Office in Doncaster where staff and surrounding businesses could donate, sign up for their own coffee morning and also enter a draw for a chance to win a Nescafé Dolce Gusto Coffee Machine. The Macmillan Coffee Morning roadshows have raised an impressive £1,300 for the charity to date, which relies on public donations for nearly all (98%) of its funding.
Macmillan urgently needs the public to get involved in Coffee Morning, at a time when disruption caused by Covid-19 means demand for the charity’s services is high, while it’s income is down. The official Macmillan Coffee Morning date is Friday 24th September, but it can be held at any time. From a group in the garden, sharing a coffee over a screen or a takeaway cake and cuppa, you can hold yours however you like. There are so many reasons to host a Coffee Morning – whatever your reason, it’s a great one. All you have to do is sign up at macmillan.org.uk/coffee and Macmillan will send you a fundraising kit with top tips to get you started.
