The World's Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support returns on Friday (September 28).

Businesses, schools, shops and individuals will be putting on delicious spreads of coffee, tea and cake to raise money for the charity that provides free support to cancer sufferers.

The charity, which last year raised £29.5 million, asks people all over the UK to host their own coffee mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.

With more than 20 events being run across west London, we will be bringing updates on the fantastic events being run by you.

We would love to see photos of your Macmillan coffee mornings. You can tweet them to us or post your photos on our Facebook page .

River Island coffee morning

River Island getting involved with a coffee morning for Macmillan this morning!

The bake sale is on in the Chelsea House Canteen from 10am onwards.

Some background

Okay, just a quick break from all the delicious cakes to provide some background.

The first ever coffee morning happened back in 1990, with the idea guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan.

After a very successful first year with just a small group of people, the cancer support charity did it again the next year – only that time nationally.

Since then, coffee mornings have raised over £165.5 million for Macmillan. Amazing work!

'A chat, a cake and a cuppa'

Hounslow coffee morning

A coffee morning in Wellington Day Centre, in Hounslow, will be taking place from 11am until 1pm on Saturday (September 30).

Manjinder Authi, organiser of the event, said that the Macmillan charity is “close to our hearts and family”.

We, like a lot of people either know someone that has cancer or has had cancer.


Macmillan provide support to cancer patients who are going through such a difficult time.


Helping to raise money for such a worthy cause allows Macmillan to ‘make sure no one faces cancer alone’.


If you are free come along and pop by for tea, coffee, cakes and a lot more!

If you cannot attend, the group has also created a JustGiving page for donations.

The coffee morning will be in Wellington Day Centre, 292 Staines Road, Hounslow, TW4 5BA.

Inspiration for west London bakers

While we await some mouthwatering pictures, here’s a few snaps from a previous Macmillan coffee morning to get you warmed up.

The coffee morning at the Lord Nelson pub had a range of tasty snacks to raise money.

Perhaps some ideas or inspiration for tomorrow’s event?

Last year's incredible effort

Last year, coffee mornings across the UK raised a whopping total of £29.5 million.

That incredible amount of money enabled Macmillan to continue to provide free advice and support to those affected by cancer.

Here’s to another fantastic amount this year!
