Fancy a slice of cake to go with your coffee?

We are holding a coffee morning (all day) at our Southwark store in support of the Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning where our customers and passersby can scoff their faces with cake and wash it all down with a nice cup of coffee (or tea)!

ABC Southwark will be kindly donating £5 from each sale that they make from 24/09/2014 until 26/09/2014 and will be holding 2 sweepstakes.

The first sweepstake will comprise of a £2 entry donation and you can guess how many 100’s and 1000’s are on the cake in the picture provided by Macmillan Cancer Support which will be on view in the reception area of ABC Selfstore Southwark. The winner will be selected at random after September 26th 2014 and will receive 50% of the donations. The other 50% will go to MacMillan Cancer Support.

The second sweepstake will comprise of a £2 entry donation where you will try to Spot the difference between 20 “double shot of espresso” pictures and you have to guess which is the double shot. The picture is provided by Macmillan Cancer Support which will be on view in the reception area of ABC Selfstore Southwark. The winner will be selected at random after September 26th 2014 and will receive 50% of the donations. The other 50% will go to MacMillan Cancer Support.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest charity fundraising event. People across the UK – and sometimes further afield – hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2013 154,000 people signed up to coffee morning, raising a record £20 million for charity.

The event started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle – as they might ordinarily do – but donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process.

The idea seemed such a simple, yet effective one that they suggested the model be taken up nationally. The first National World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was in 1991, when 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £113 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.

To get involved all you need to do is sign up and Macmillan will send you a lovely Coffee Morning kit, full of everything you need for a successful coffee morning.

It makes inviting your friends and raising the money really easy, so you’ll find organising your coffee morning as simple as can be.
