How you can help

Our nine-year sponsorship of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning has already made a huge difference. It's back on 28th September, so get prepared and register online for your Macmillan kit, which contains all you'll need to host your own Coffee Morning.

If you're not a baking pro, never fear: our hassle-free Food to Order service means you can pick up a beautiful spread of afternoon tea treats, made by us, from a store to suit you. Better yet, when you order any of our four favourite cakes online in September, we'll donate 10 per cent to Macmillan.

From fundraising events to special products, there'll be lots going on in stores, too, so be sure to head to your local M&S and get involved.

Raise a mug

You can't have cake without tea or coffee. Sip your cuppa from these Macmillan mugs, or use them to serve guests at your Macmillan Coffee Morning. Since a 10 per cent donation from the sale of each goes to Macmillan Cancer Support, they'll help you make even more of a difference.

Meet our Macmillan mascot

In honour of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning, everyone's favourite teatime treat has been given a special makeover. Available in stores, our new Macmillan Colin the Caterpillar cake is adorned with purple and green sprinkles to match the charity's colours. Find him, along with matching mini Colins and our special, sprinkle-topped Macmillan doughnuts, at your local M&S. We'll be donating 10 per cent from the sale of each to Macmillan, too, so make sure Colin is the extra-special guest at your Coffee Morning!

How we work with Macmillan

A worthy cause

Around 2.7 million people are living with cancer in the UK today. By 2040, this will rise to 5.3 million. Since 2010, M&S has raised more than £13 million for Macmillan Cancer Support. It’s an extraordinary amount that could help fund 242 Macmillan professionals for a year – experts such as nurses, occupational therapists and dietitians who provide essential medical, emotional and practical support for those whose lives are affected by cancer.

Macmillan professionals are here to help you find your best way through from the moment of diagnosis, so you’re able to live life as fully as you can. For information, support or just someone to talk to, call 0808 808 0000 or visit
