M&S Food is once again supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s annual fundraiser, World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, marking an amazing 11-year partnership together. To date, we have raised £19 million together for people living with cancer and their families.

This September it’s time to BAKE A DIFFERENCE for Macmillan Cancer Support, to help fund vital support for people living with cancer, who need Macmillan more than ever before.

With the nation taking to their mixing bowls more than ever, we’re calling on people to come together and do whatever it takes to get involved. M&S Food is running a baking challenge on Instagram throughout September – so everyone can put their new-found baking skills to use for a GREAT CAUSE. We’re asking the UK to show off their best baking creations and take part in our #CakeDonateNominate challenge. Get involved by posting your homemade bake on Instagram, donating £5 to Macmillan and tagging five people you’d like to see dust off their aprons.

M&S is providing delicious inspiration to encourage people to bake it happen for Coffee Morning – from super easy fridge cakes for the family, moreish banana bread (we should all be able to make this lockdown favourite by now!) to epic Colin the Caterpillar cookie dough cupcakes, topped with our brand new Mini Colin Faces! Find our recipe inspiration on our M&S Macmillan page here

M&S Food is also introducing Macmillan products for our customers to enjoy, including a limited-edition Colin the Caterpillar and Mini Colins, adorned with purple and green decorations, with 10% of sales donated to the charity. We’ll also be donating 5p from the sale of every coffee and slice of cake sold at our in-store cafés throughout September.

On your marks, get set… #CakeDonateNominate
