Macmillan Cancer Support World's Biggest Coffee Morning

Preston Illustration was recently asked to help out on the PR for the Macmillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee Morning which was held on Friday 28th September. They were looking for someone to help by stirring up celebrity interest in the coffee morning. Recent graduate Rik Das hand painted 25 coffee cups to be handed to some very well known celebrities, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Fry being a couple of the 25 recipients. It's lead to quite a buzz on twitter, as you can imagine, so as the idea was that on the coffee morning these celebs would create a twitter buzz about receiving their personalised coffee cups. It worked.

Well done to Rik for getting involved and doing such a brilliant job of personalising these take away mugs to a very tight deadline.
The event has raised over £600 000 so for Macmillan. However I am sure that if you wanted to you could raise even more money or add your financial support to the project click the title link to see more information or to donate.
