Are you ready for the great British coffee and cake-off?


Fancy a whole day of guilt-free coffee and cake? Then there's a treat for you this September.

On Friday 27 September, cancer support charity Macmillan is holding what it's terming Jersey's 'Greatest Coffee Morning' to raise funds in the tastiest way possible.

Across the island, charity coffee mornings, cake sales, auctions and raffles will be hosted by individuals, businesses and community organisations as part of the special day.

Sponsored for the ninth year running by C5 Alliance, Jersey’s Greatest Coffee Morning is the local version of Macmillan UK’s giant fundraising event.            

Michelle Parker, the charity's Communications and Events Manager, commented: “...It doesn’t even have to be an event with coffee and cakes.

“We’ve had people making juices, doing challenges and some having a ‘dress in green’ day, all for the event.”

The official date for Jersey’s Greatest Coffee Morning is Friday 27 September, but islanders are free to organise related events at the weekend, or on another convenient date during the month.

The idea is to get as many different people as possible holding events and chatting with tea and cake whilst raising much-needed money to support and empower those in the Island affected by cancer - whether through a personal diagnosis or that of a family member.
