M&S Yate Simply Food and Macmillan Cancer Support are teaming up for the charity’s flagship fundraising event, World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

The collaboration is now in its seventh year, and M&S Yate is calling on customers to join in and do their bit on 30 September.  From the start of the month, the cafe will be donating 5p from every cup of coffee and slice of cake sold throughout September to Macmillan Cancer Support.

There are two and a half million people living with cancer in the UK today, a number that is set to rise to four million by 2030.

M&S has supported World’s Biggest Coffee Morning since 2010 and during this time the retailer has raised over £6 million for Macmillan. 

Lewis Tea, Store Manager at M&S Yate Simply Food, said: “Macmillan is a charity that’s close to the hearts of many of our customers and colleagues which is why we’re determined to make this year’s event our most successful yet.”
