 In aid of the event, the store, which is this year celebrating its 9th year of partnership with the charity are also offering a line up of events throughout the day, including its annual coffee morning and a raffle.

 Selma Manton-Brown, the Hospitality Manager at M&S Salisbury, Said

"We'll have lots of fun activities happening at our World's Biggest Coffee Morning event and hope many of our customers will join us to raise a mug and enjoy a slice of cake to help people living with cancer. The annual event is a great excuse to get together with friends and family and raise money for a great cause at the same time!"

Since its collaboration in 2010, M&S customers and colleagues have raised over £13 million for the charity, including £3.5 million in the last year alone.

That’s helped to fund 65 vital professional posts, bringing medical, practical and emotional support to those suffering with cancer and their families.
