Macmillan Coffee Morning Needs You More Than Ever

At Macmillan Cancer Support we know that people living with cancer and their loved ones face more challenges today than most will ever have experienced in their lifetimes.

Cancer diagnosis and treatment are tough enough, but 2022 has brought spiralling household bills on top of the estimated £1000 additional costs per month of going through cancer.  Add in lengthening waiting times arising from the post-pandemic treatment backlog and the picture becomes starker still.

Macmillan in Rotherham is doing whatever it takes to make sure every person with cancer gets the help they need – be it financial, practical, emotional or psychological. But we need your help to do this. I’m asking you to sign up now, if you can, to hold a Macmillan Coffee Morning (Register at

Last year our generous Coffee Morning Hosts across the UK raised over £11 million with £36,312 coming from Rotherham alone.

Your actions in gathering friends, family and colleagues together over a brew and a cake at your home, workplace, school, community centre or open space for September’s Macmillan Coffee Morning meant we could directly support the 1,630 people who are diagnosed with cancer every year in Rotherham.

Macmillan Coffee Morning donations helped us give a Macmillan Grant to 197 Rotherham residents worth a total of more than £69,000, whilst our Macmillan Support Line service took calls from 452 people in Rotherham who needed our immediate support.

And this year Macmillan has committed £30m to fund vital welfare benefits services across the UK including Rotherham.

In addition our Macmillan Information and Support Service Centres across the UK continue to provide vital face-to-face counselling, advice and support to anyone affected by cancer at any time in their lives.

Thank you to every one of you who will either hold or attend a Macmillan Coffee Morning this September to help us support the 3 million people living with cancer in the UK.
