Stir yourself for the world’s biggest coffee morning

ORGANISERS are urging Comet country to stir themselves for the world’s biggest coffee morning.

The annual event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support will see schools, businesses, family and friends gather across the UK for a hot drink or a piece of cake on Friday, September 28.

Staff at the Comet will be holding their own coffee morning for the cause and ahead of the event Macmillan mascot Muggy paid a visit to our offices in Stevenage and met with our very own Sniffer the Comet newshound.

Muggy and co also held a collection at Tesco in Stevenage to promote the coffee morning taking place in Stevenage town centre later this month.

“Taking part in our coffee morning is a fun and easy way to support us and there are a number of ways you can get involved,” said Macmillan’s Hertfordshire fundraising manager Kerry Briars.

“You can register to hold a coffee morning yourself and you will receive a free pack which has everything you need to host your event. This includes invitations and posters as well as doilies, balloons and stickers to make the event as green as possible.

“It can be as easy as having some friends round for a cup of tea and a cake or as complex as an all day event with a raffle, stalls and competitions. And although the national date is September 28 your coffee morning does not have to be held on this day, or in fact in the morning. It can be as big or small as you like, all that matters is that you take part and have a good time.”
