The Coffee Morning time is here again. In 2011 Music Corner are hosting a coffee (or tea) and jam session. Not the fruit style, we welcome you to come down to the shop on Friday September 30th between 10am and 3 pm with your acoustic instrument and enjoy and coffee and a impromtu jamming session - or if you would prefer to play solo; please do.
We ask for donations on the day all of which will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Research.
The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest fundraising event. We ask people across the UK - and sometimes further afield - to hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan.
Last year 43,000 people signed up to hold a coffee morning, raising over £8 million.
This year we want to raise even more money to help change the lives of people affected by cancer.
The event started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle - as they might ordinarily do - but donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process.
The idea seemed such a simple, yet effective one that they suggested the model be taken up nationally. The first National World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was in 1991, when 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £60 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.
