Artizan in Church Street, Stornoway, is only one of many venues in the Islands for the world's greatest coffee morning, tomorrow (Friday September 29th) and Saturday.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.

They ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.

Last year alone they raised more than £27 million and say that together we can make this another successful year.

The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, they did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
