Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer or families who have lost a loved one due to cancer.
The number of people living with cancer in the UK in 2016 increased by almost half a million people in the last five years. That’s an estimated 2.5 million people, rising to 4 million by 2030.
To raise awareness of their fight to provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care, Macmillan holds their flagship coffee mornings every year.
At Fusion HQ on Friday, September 29th, we’ll be taking part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning. So we thought we’d share some information on how you can get involved in your workplace.
This amazing event raises millions of pounds each year for cancer patients. In 2016 alone, £29.5million was raised through Macmillan’s Coffee Mornings.
In fact, since creating this fun event, Macmillan has raised a grand total of £136million!
Getting involved in the Macmillan Coffee morning is simple. Just fill in your details and wait for your coffee morning pack to arrive.
Macmillan provides you with all the flyers you need to spread the word in your office.
Each Coffee Morning pack includes bunting, tablecloths, banners, flags and even some tasty recipes to bake up.
Just click on the link below to start the process in your workplace.

With everyone’s help, Macmillan can hopefully beat last year’s figure!
Macmillan Coffee Morning is a great chance to raise the morale in the office and pull together as a team to support this vital fundraiser.
We understand not everyone in the workplace can be off at once, so we have put together some tips on how you can organise your Coffee Morning.
Everyone has their uses and delegating tasks when organising your coffee morning will help to keep track of who is doing what.
Here at Fusion, our operational staff will be taking care of the decorations and coffee supplies, our clinical department will be providing the tasty treats, and our directors will be helping us to see it all off!
The Fusion team will be bringing in donations and baking up some treats ahead of our coffee morning.
Ask each person in the workplace to bring in a donation and delegate a treasurer to collect all monies and ensure it is paid to the correct bank – NatWest.
Payments can be made online, by phone, by post and by text.
If for some reason you are not able to host your own Coffee Morning, don’t worry because Macmillan will be hosting one in your area too.

We hope you all enjoy your Macmillan Coffee Morning and look forward to seeing the amazing sum we raise this year.
If you would like advice on dealing with cancer in the workplace, as part of our Occupational Health services, we can offer help and support for those going through tough times.
Contact one of our team to find out more.
Or head over to the Macmillan website which has a wealth of information and support.
P.S. For the purposes of full disclosure, the cakes pictured in this blog aren’t actually by the staff from Fusion! We’re good, but perhaps not quite Great British Bake Off standard!
Perhaps we should take that last statement back.
The standards of baking on the day were exceptional! Here are some photos to prove it.
You can see a selection of the cakes on offer and Portland Jones, the leader of our running club, who went around our neighbouring offices, selling cakes. They raised a respectable total of £20.99.
