The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan's biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.
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. It was so effective, it was repeated the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £165.5 million for Macmillan.
Many businesses, clubs and individuals across Romsey and villages have signed up to take part in the event which will run this week.
Last year alone, £19.5 million was raised and Macmillan are aiming to raise even more in 2017.
