The Macmillan charity is hoping to raise £8 million through the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 25 September. Half Spoon granulated sugar is supporting this through its limited edition packaging, which is currently in supermarkets.For each pack sold, Half Spoon will donate 10% to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Everyone can participate in this event and why not encourage your friends, family and work colleagues to have fun in the kitchen and get baking also? The idea is that you simply take your cakes into work and when everyone stops for a mid morning break to indulge in a cup of something warm and sell your delicacies for a small donation to the Charity. It’s a straightforward and easy, enjoyable way to raise much-needed funds to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer and support the excellent work that this charity does.

So where you might have had one biscuit before – you can have two of these, spoil yourself and help others!
