Let’s get baking!

GottaBe! will be helping Macmillan raise money once again in their fight against cancer, by holding our very own Macmillan Coffee Morning on the 24th September. As a charity that is close to home for so many, we are looking forward to welcoming you all and raising as much money as possible!


The Macmillan Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest annual fundraising event, in 2020 they raised £10,082,117 and they are looking to top that this year. It all started in 1990 as a small affair with a simple idea. Since then, Macmillan Coffee Morning has raised over £290 million.

The idea is simple, invite guests into your office, home, garden, tent or any other location it doesn’t matter. You just need to share cakes, coffee, tea, and conversation and raise money to help battle cancer. Anyone can take part, all you need to do is set a date, receive your Coffee Morning kit, and then get baking!

In celebration of the Macmillan Coffee morning the team at GottaBe! Health wants to share healthy cake recipes. Cakes don’t have to be unhealthy, by using alternative ingredients you can make delicious, healthy snacks that can be enjoyed guilt free every day.
