UK Community Programme
In 2014, we set up a nationwide Community Programme to enable our teams to support the communities we serve. Our nationwide activities focus on social themes that our customers tell us they care about such as litter, loneliness and food waste, and we also encourage our teams to plan their own activities to meet the needs of their specific communities.
Every store has its own Community Noticeboard where customers and members of the public can put up news and information about activities that are happening in their local area. Plus, with Costa Coffee outlets in over 30 countries around the world, we also support our international stores in similar ways.
By making the most of our space in-store and drawing on the enthusiasm of our amazing teams, we put huge effort into bringing people together to strengthen the communities we are part of.
Your Macmillan Coffee Morning, made a little better with Costa Coffee
Fresh from being crowned the Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop for a record-breaking 13th year, we’re incredibly proud to be joint Headline Partner of Macmillan Cancer Support’s Coffee Morning for the second year running. Macmillan carries out incredible work supporting people living with cancer and their families from the moment they are diagnosed.
Macmillan’s Coffee Morning has been running annually since 1990 and is a key flagship event for the charity. This year the official Coffee Morning day is Friday 29 September, but people can hold events whenever best suits them. Find out more and sign up to host your own Coffee Morning.
Funds raised from Macmillan’s Coffee Morning is vital, as approximately £1,000 will fund the support of a Macmillan nurse for an entire week. Read more about the great work Macmillan Cancer Support does here.
This September, make supporting Macmillan Cancer Support a piece of cake - simply visit your local Costa Coffee store to take part in fundraising fun, donate in-store or online via the Macmillan website, or enjoy a delicious, sweet treat that has a donation to Macmillan baked in. Let’s come together and make a difference!
In addition, Macmillan is holding a wide scale fundraising collection in selected Costa Coffee stores from 22-24 September. Find out more and show your support by signing up to volunteer.
