Marks & Spencer’s Colin the Caterpillar has been given a makeover to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ event on Friday 28 September.  

The limited-edition ‘coffee morning Colin’ has purple feet and green and purple sprinkles, and will be available in M&S stores across the country from 1 to 30 September. He’ll be accompanied by mini Colins – also decked out in Macmillan colours.

As well as the coffee morning Colin, customers will be able to pick-up other Macmillan-themed products in M&S Foodhalls, with 10% of each sale throughout September supporting the growing number of people living with cancer in the UK. These include a brand new Macmillan doughnut available at in-store bakeries.

The Macmillan Colin the Caterpillar Cake will retail for £7 and mini Colins at £2 for five.
