The annual Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will return to Hull College on Friday 24th September.
The charity event, which is being staged at ‘The Bistro’ in the Tower Block at the college from 10am to 1pm, will see Early Years students selling a variety of homemade cakes, scones, buns and biscuits to help raise vital funds to support for people living with cancer.
In addition to that, our Nail Enhancement and Advance Nail Enhancement students will also be participating in the fundraising efforts by offering nail art, nail painting and glitter tattoos for just £1 per treatment (along with selling cakes as well, of course). And what’s more, free tea and coffee will also be on offer to staff and students on the day.
And the keen bakers amongst our College community will also be able to get involved by showcasing their talents and donating items - whether it be sweet or savoury, chilli-infused and pack a punch, macaroons or upside-down cakes - to be sold on the day.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event each year. The first-ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process.
However, it was so successful that they did it again the following year - only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £290 million for Macmillan, with more than £10 million raised across the UK in 2020.
