    I have just had an automated response from Macmillan. It could take up to three working days for them to respond, but I will pass on their reply as soon as possible.

    I'll be there! I will have to have virtual cake but my coffee (and donation) will be real.

    My coffee will be real but my cheesecake may not be.

    That sounds great, it will be easy to locate the correct thread for those of us who only post occasionally and probably more people will be able to ‘attend’ if it’s ongoing throughout the entire day. How kind of you to organise things. I’m sure many will want to contribute and seeing pics of virtual & real cakes n coffee will be fun. Considering the date I wonder if there will be any Brexit or Halloween themed cakes :D

    I'm surprised it got past the swear filter!

    Brilliant idea! I’m at work that day (our half term is the week before), but I’ll make sure I contribute once I’m at home.

    Sorry to hear that @jellycowfish.
    It's surprising how much a donation at funerals can make and every little helps. We too had donations as we were so grateful for our local hospice for both uncle and f-i-l.

    Just heard from Macmillan. Hope this is ok with everyone:

    Hello Susan

    Well this sounds great! Just thinking through how this might work, so you are all going to make individual donations (at which point you will be able to gift-aid online) using our donate button on our coffee morning page. If all of you are happy that this means we would not be able to total the amount donated then that would be fine.

    If that sounds OK to you then it just leaves me to wish you all the luck on the day and hope you have a great chat, enjoy the coffee and cake!

    If people don't mind posting their donation amounts on here too we could tot that up.

    That's great! I went to a Macmillan Coffee Morning, and that's exactly how we donated. Online. No cash changed hands.

    Looking forward to it!

    Or, we could PM Knitone with our donation? More discreet.

    Brilliant idea! Our half term is the week before, but will definitely make a donation.
