Libraries NI invites you to join us and Macmillan Cancer Support for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Over the coming weeks, many local libraries across Northern Ireland are taking part by hosting a self-service coffee morning and people are being encouraged to come along and raise vital funds to help Macmillan be right there for people living with cancer in Northern Ireland.

Macmillan is working tirelessly to do whatever it takes for people with cancer at a time when disruption caused by Covid-19 means demand for the charity’s services is high, while its income is down. Nearly all (98%) of Macmillan’s funding comes directly from donations, so it’s never been more important to attend or host a Coffee Morning and raise vital funds to ensure Macmillan can continue to deliver the services that people living with cancer desperately need, now and in the future.

Jim O’Hagan, Libraries NI Chief Executive explains;
“Libraries NI and Macmillan Cancer Support have been working in partnership for many years to ensure that people have access to the information they need after a cancer diagnosis. We are delighted that so many of our libraries will be involved this year and we are looking forward to our customers calling into their local participating branch to help themselves to a cup of hot tea and coffee to support Macmillan with the vital work they do.”

Joanne Young, Senior Fundraising Manager at Macmillan says;

“We are delighted that Libraries NI is able to take part in this year’s coffee morning for Macmillan. Each library will do it their own way and that just epitomises what coffee morning is about. Our relationship with Libraries NI is long-standing and a lot more than fundraising. The libraries are in the hub of our communities, accessible to all, providing cancer information and signposting on behalf of Macmillan. Libraries know how difficult the last 18 months has been, and they, like Macmillan, will do “Whatever it Takes” for their local communities. With 82,000 people here in NI living with cancer, Libraries NI fundraising will help Macmillan be there for people when they need us most.”
