People across Scotland will soon be getting together with friends for coffee and cake - all in the name of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The World's Biggest Coffee Morning, held on Friday September 26, is a great excuse to catch up with your favourite people and raise some money for a good cause.  And it's really easy too. Just ask your guests to make a donation for the coffee and cake you serve.

Whether it's steaming mugs and biscuits, or homemade cakes and your best cups, it really doesn't matter how simple or fancy you make it. The only thing that really matters is the treat of getting everyone together and knowing that every coffee and cake you share with your friends will help someone affected by cancer get the support they need to feel more in control of life.

Last year 3,642 people living in Central Scotland called the Macmillan Support Line for cancer information, advice or simply a chat. And so far, there are 208 Macmillan nurses in the region providing expert support for people affected by cancer, and their families. But there's still more needed and that's where your coffee morning comes in. Every pound you raise will mean more people can get the Macmillan support they need.

So come on, let's make time for a treat this September. It all starts with ordering your free Coffee Morning Kit, bursting with goodies to make raising money really simple and fun.
