Macmillan Cancer Support is taking the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to the National Eisteddfod, 1-8 August in Meifod, near Welshpool.


Our stand 403–404 will be home to tea, coffee and cake, launching the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning at 11am every day.


This year, the record-breaking fund-raising event that is Coffee Morning is 25-years old and we want to celebrate in style in Wales, looking to improve on last year’s whopping figure of £1,142,060 raised in Wales. 


Visitors will also be able to get advice from our welfare benefits advisers and our Macmillan professionals – look out for details on our daily board on the Maes.


Macmillan Wales’ General Manager Susan Morris said: “The National Eisteddfod is a unique cultural event and we believe that Macmillan should be at the heart of such an iconic Welsh festival. 


“The National Eisteddfod enables us to connect with thousands of people and offer support and advice. Cake tastes better together and you can sign up to take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and have fun and raise money for a good cause.  


“At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect every aspect of your life and we’re here to support you. We look forward to greeting new and old friends at our stand.”


Broadcaster and singer Caryl Parry Jones will also be visiting us on Wednesday 5 August.


Throughout the week we will also be joined by guests, including First Minister Carwyn Jones, Lib Dem leader Kirsty Williams, Plaid Cymru’s Elin Jones, and the Conservative Party’s Suzy Davies.


During the Eisteddfod we will be asking the public to help us with our #CancerTimeToChoose2016 National Assembly election campaign initiative, which will build a map of people’s cancer experiences in Wales. 


Macmillan is calling on people to visit us and share their cancer experiences. By 2030 in Wales, 250,000 people will be living with or beyond cancer and Macmillan aims to put cancer at the heart of the 2016 National Assembly elections. 


There will also be a rich programme of child-friendly activities throughout the Eisteddfod, including loom banding and biscuit icing.


Macmillan offers free, information and support for anyone with concerns and questions relating to cancer and anyone unable to attend the National Eisteddfod of Wales can call the Macmillan Support Line free on 0808 808 0000 or go to
