'Coffee, cakes and motorcycles mix well' for Macmillan Coffee Morning

1 of 1

A number of motorcycle training schools will be taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to help support the charity Macmillan, which offers vital support to those who are affected by cancer.

The Coffee Morning will be taking place at locations throughout the country on Friday, September 29, and is Macmillan’s largest fundraising event, raising a massive £29.5 million last year - with an objective to better that number this year.


The Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC) will be doing their bit, and are going to be running a number of coffee mornings through their accredited schools all over the country.

“This is the first year MCIAC accredited training schools have taken part in this great cause and provides an alternative venue for those who like to support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning,” said Director of Safety and Training for the MCIA, Karen Cole. “Coffee, cakes and motorcycles mix very well, with tea rooms always being packed with riders at the weekends!”

“Motorcyclists have a long-standing reputation for getting involved in charity events. These range from the annual Santa toy runs, which many local bike clubs run, to Blood Bikers, who ferry life-saving products out of hours for the NHS.”

The Macmillan Coffee Morning is an annual event that has been happening since 1990. How it works is simple — Share a cuppa at a location near you and donate the cost of your preferred beverage to Macmillan.

In the time it has been running, Macmillan have so far raised a staggering £165.5 million to help those affected by cancer.
