Frequently Asked Questions

Sign up, choose your Coffee Morning Challenge and the date of your challenge. The official Coffee Morning date is 25 th September 2020 but you can take on your challenge whenever it suits you.

Once you’ve decided on your distance and target, ask your friends and family to sponsor you and raise vital funds for people living with cancer.

We very much appreciate your previous support and hope you will host again this year - please click here if you’d like to sign up to host a Coffee Morning again. You’ll also be able to find ideas for hosting a socially distanced coffee morning.

We are offering a fitness challenge this year as we know lots of supporters have been getting fit during lockdown and we wanted to offer everyone a chance to support Macmillan’s Coffee Morning in their own way. So, whether that’s hosting or taking on a fitness challenge (or even both), we know that nothing stops a Coffee Morning!

The challenge is yours to decide, so choose something that is achievable for your current fitness levels or something that you can reasonably train for. However, Macmillan recommends that you consult your doctor before undertaking any new fitness routine or strenuous activity.

Once you’ve signed up, create your personalised Just Giving page, set your distance and your fundraising target. Then share with friends and family so they can sponsor you and help you reach your fundraising target. You can also share your page on social media to spread the word.

If you don’t have a JustGiving account and pay in your sponsorship money in another way, we may not be able to thank you for raising money for Coffee Morning Challenge.

Once you've signed up, we will send you a link via email to create a JustGiving fundraising page.

There is no minimum fundraising target. We just ask that you raise as much as you can to support people living with cancer.

The easiest way is to pay the money into your own bank account and then make an online payment to your Just Giving page, but you won’t be able to claim Gift Aid on that amount.

Make every £1 worth 25p more at no extra cost to you. It’s just a little box to tick but gift aid makes a huge difference when it comes to how much money we can raise to support people living with cancer.

To be eligible to add gift aid to your donation, you must be a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax then the amount of gift aid claimed on all donations made in that tax year it’s your responsibility to pay any difference.

This option will be there on your fundraising page, but if you could mention it to your sponsors, you could help raise much more money to support people living with cancer. Find out more about Gift Aid here.

If you choose to use Facebook as a fundraising platform, please note we may not be aware of this fundraising activity.

If you raise money on Facebook and want us to acknowledge this, please get in touch; you can email or send us a private message through Facebook.

No problem you can email us at or call 0300 1000 200 and we’ll make sure you won’t receive any more emails.

If you’ve set up a JustGiving fundraising page, you can cancel that too by following these instructions on JustGiving.
