Take part on Friday 25 September 2015
It’s an unavoidable fact: more than one in three people will get cancer at some point in their lives. Cancer survival rates are improving all the time, and, in the UK, have actually doubled over the last 40 years. However, cancer still remains one of the nation’s top five killers.
Macmillan Cancer Support, one of Britain’s biggest charities, believes that no one should face cancer alone. As well as helping with the medical needs of people affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care.
The charity, which consists of millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers, campaigners and people affected by cancer, works tirelessly to raise valuable funds. Last year alone, it raised £215.2 million, £56.6 million of which was used to fund and support a range of health and social care professionals.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s largest fundraiser of the year. Last year the nationwide event raised over £25 million - enough to fund 474 MacMillan nurses for a year - with help from people like you.
We’re doing our bit - come and join us!
Pulse is hosting a series of coffee mornings across the country to fundraise for this amazing charity, and we’d like you to join us.
Come to one of our coffee mornings on Friday 25th September at your local branch and enjoy a selection of sweet and savoury treats baked by our very own Pulse teams. And please, bring along your own baking donations; every cake sold could change someone’s life for the better, which makes going up for seconds even more tempting!
With your help, Macmillan could support even more people affected by cancer in your local area. Contact your local branch to find out more about a coffee morning near you. And please invite your family and friends to take part in this worthwhile, enjoyable event: after all, who doesn’t like cake?
Let’s help Macmillan raise even more money this year to help ensure that nobody has to face cancer alone. We look forward to seeing you on Friday 25th September.
