Over the course of the morning, by our estimate, well in excess of 100 people came to visit for coffee, cake and a chat — many saying that they had thoroughly enjoyed the get together and chance to catch up with friends that they haven't seen for a while.

At the end of a very very well supported event, a total of £715 had been raised in aid of Macmillan...as they say of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, every slice of cake helps makes a huge difference to people facing cancer. Thank you so much to everyone who was able to support the event.
