Macmillan Cancer Support is launching a campaign to encourage the public to take part in the Coffee Morning fundraising event.

Created by AMV BBDO, the agency’s first work since winning the account dramatises that nothing, not even a global pandemic, stops the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning.

The TV, digital, and radio campaign breaks on 6 July and runs until the end of September to highlight that, as treatments have been delayed, Macmillan’s work has never been more vital and neither has the fundraising generated by the Coffee Morning, now in its 30th year.

AMV’s campaign, which encourages people to hold different kinds of coffee mornings for the post-COVID world, and to do whatever it takes to get involved, makes a virtue of lockdown shooting conditions, blending live action with myriad animations styles, developed together with London studio Blinkink.
