Instead it is holding events from 26 September to 2 October. Expect fondant fancies and Victoria sponge cakes amongst the optics and beer pumps.In addition the pubs will host static bike ride challenges for staff and customers to help raise more money.Since the charity partnership formed in May 2012, Greene King’s coffee mornings have served up almost £500,000, which contributes to the £2.5 million already raised for Macmillan.Greene King is particularly encouraging male staff and customers to join in because men are 60 per cent more likely to get cancer and 70 per cent more likely to die from the disease than women.Rooney Anand, chief executive officer at Greene King, said:“Pubs are very much in the heart of the community, so bringing together our teams and customers with coffee morning activities for Macmillan always proves a resounding success. We are really proud to have raised almost half a million pounds for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning so far and this year we have more going on than ever across our 1,800 pubs so hope to reach a new fundraising record this year.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
