Hoist a mug and help Macmillan Cancer Support this September - and find a big coffee morning near you with our list of North Devon events.

Kettles across North Devon will be on overdrive today (Friday) as the World's Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan returns.

On and around Friday, September 29, community groups, businesses, schools and friends will gather to host the annual coffee morning and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Last year the event raised a record-breaking £29.5million nationwide and since it began in 1990 it has raised more than £165.5m.

People are invited to go to the WBCM website at www.macmillan.org.uk/coffee and sign up to host their own event - it doesn't matter whether you meet in a café, bring cakes to work or gather at a friend's home.

Once again M&S is the official event partner for an eighth year and staff at M&S Barnstaple are inviting their customers to join them for a cuppa on Friday, September 29.

Store manager Nina Hunter said: "Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, so Macmillan is a charity that is very close to the hearts of our customers and colleagues alike.

"World's Biggest Coffee Morning is a fantastic opportunity to get together with friends, family or colleagues to enjoy coffee and cake - all while raising money for a fantastic cause.

"We'd love as many of our customers as possible to join us in the M&S Café on September 29, for what is set to be a very special day.

"For those unable to make the event, our Macmillan goods provide the perfect package to host your own Coffee Morning, whether you're baking it or faking it."

Throughout September M&S customers will be able to enjoy a host of tasty treats in M&S Foodhalls, with 10 percent of each sale going to Macmillan.

This includes M&S's most popular cakes - the Victoria Sandwich and Lemon Drizzle - as well as biscuits, cupcakes and baking mixes. All M&S Cafés will also donate 5p from every hot drink and slice of cake sold throughout September.

Plus M&S is stocking a range of limited-edition Macmillan homeware items, including a colourful 'Best Baker' cake slice, set of cake forks and 'Love a Cuppa' mug as well as an array of chic bag accessories - including key ring and pen - designed by artist Rob Ryan.
