Macmillan Coffee Morning 2017

Macmillan Coffee Morning 2017 

Local libraries invite you to the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning 

Libraries NI has announced a list of libraries across Northern Ireland that will be hosting this year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 29 September, which is Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship fundraiser. 

Call into a library near you to enjoy a cuppa and chat, with some cake of course, all while making a huge difference to the lives of local people living with cancer. Every slice of cake eaten and cup of coffee poured in local libraries across Northern Ireland has the power to help change lives for local people living with cancer. 

Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, emotional and personal support to people affected by cancer. There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and cancer can affect everything, including a person’s body, relationships and finances. 

Working in partnership with Libraries NI, a wide range of Macmillan information booklets is now available in every public library. Library staff have received cancer awareness training to ensure that people affected by cancer find the information they want, or are shown where to go to get the medical, emotional and financial support they need. 

Helen Osborn, Acting Chief Executive, Libraries NI explains:

“Libraries NI is delighted that over 60 libraries across Northern Ireland will be hosting the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, which is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. We work in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide information in all our 96 libraries to those experiencing cancer. We would love if you could call into a library near you on 29 September and help support Macmillan with the vital work they do in supporting those who are affected by cancer.” 

To access support from Macmillan, visit or call 0808 808 00 00. 

Everyone is welcome to pop into a local library and enjoy a cup of coffee all for a great cause! Visit the Libraries NI website at for details of all libraries taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.​
