Every September, the UK charity Macmillan Cancer Support holds the biggest coffee morning in the world – and since 2013, we have held our own event in Second Life. The event in 2017 will be our fourth year hosting this.
DJ Elrik Merlin will be spinning the tunes at the Prim Perfect Head Offices from 1 – 3pm SLT.
The cakes will be available from today until Friday 6th October.
This year, our event is joined by the brilliant SL Cheerleaders (who will be baking even more cakes!).
Cakes will be available from now until Sunday 1st October at Cheertopia – and the Cheerleaders will be hosting a party (with door prizes) from 6pm onwards.
~~~ What is The Biggest Coffee Morning in the World? ~~~
The coffee morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event, where they ask people across the UK to hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer. In 2016, they raised an amazing £29.5 million. In the UK, people bake cakes to sell at coffee mornings that they host at their homes, their places of work, their schools, colleges and universities …
And here in Second Life, people organise coffee mornings too.
Since 2013, we have held a very special coffee morning at Prim Perfect, where we have raised over £540.00 (over US$720) through the sale of virtual cake (packed full of recipes, not calories) – and we will be doing it again this year.
