Mountains of cake was munched and the cuppas kept flowing when Macmillan coffee mornings were hosted across West Norfolk.
World’s biggest coffee morning events were held at community centres, schools and businesses across the area last Friday, bringing people together and raising thousands of pounds for the cancer charity.
One of the biggest events on the big day was at William Burt Social Club in West Winch,
The all-day fundraiser, which ran from 8.30am to midnight, raised £5,545 and was organised by club member and cancer survivor Nicky Proctor.
Mrs Proctor, who lives in the village, was diagnosed with breast cancer in March, 2013 and held a Macmillan event that year, raising £2,700.
Now she has the all-clear and is continuing to support the cause.
The fun day included stalls, a barbecue and live bands in the evening and was supported by pupils from West Winch Primary School.
An event in the Espresso Bar at Goddards in King’s Lynn raised £215 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Staff at the store, in Wellesley Street, made the cakes and sweet treats, while Goddards donated the hot drinks.
“People were very generous and it was a really good day,” said Joy Davison.
