Who are Macmillan and what is their ambition?
“We are millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers, campaigners and people affected by cancer. Together we make sure there’s always someone here for you, to give you the support, energy and inspiration you need to help you feel more like yourself again. We are all Macmillan.
We want to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same.
There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and as more people live longer with their cancer, this number is set to grow to 4 million by 2030. We want to make sure we can provide support to everyone who needs it, to help people affected by cancer feel more in control of their lives.”
– Macmillan charity
Did you know that one in two people born in the UK after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime? In 2016 Macmillan helped over 1.4 million people with personal support through face-to-face and telephone services.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. risual will be taking part and hosting our own Coffee Morning to raise awareness and money towards the charity and those facing cancer.
The Coffee Morning will be hosted on Friday 29th September, and our risual bakers will bring in cakes that they have baked and decorated! (We will be looking out for the risual inspired cakes!!)
In addition, we will be running a ‘risual Cake-Off’, where we will vote for our favourite cakes on the presentation and the taste (bonus points if it is a risual-themed cake!).
Please keep an eye on our social media channels to see pictures of our yummy treats, and how much we have raised from the day.
If you wish to support the Coffee Morning financially, then please text CUPCAKE to 70550 to donate £5.
