Martin Clunes OBE

Macmillan Cancer Support

 

September has become synonymous with World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship fundraiser now in its 27th year. For more than a decade, Macmillan has been thrilled to be able to count on the support one of the UK’s most recognisable television actors in raising awareness of WBCM, the inimitable Martin Clunes OBE.

A long-standing Ambassador of the charity, Martin became involved with Macmillan having experienced first-hand the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis can have, losing his father to the disease when he was only eight years old.

Martin commits time each year to raise awareness of World’s Biggest Coffee Morning by taking part in national broadcast, print and online interviews. He has penned ‘letter to editor’, filmed promotional videos, and attended local coffee mornings to provide us with the broadest coverage possible.

Since Martin first lent his support to World’s Biggest Coffee Morning registrations have increased immeasurably, and income has grown from £6.3 million to a phenomenal £29.5 million in 2016.
