Coffee cups were chinking all over Fenland to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

People across Chatteris, March and Wisbech baked and brewed up for the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

St Peter’s School in Wisbech helped to raise £570 during their ‘brew-up’.

Parents and grandparents supported the event, which was organised by Friends of St Peter’s School.

Youngsters also paid £1 to wear non-uniform and received a cupcake.

Westwood Junior School in March raised £350 during a coffee morning which was open to parents.

Pupils also bought cakes from a stall later in the day.

Staff at Bowser Ollard and Bentley solicitors in Wisbech put on a good spread with home-made cakes for clients and the public. The event on Friday raised £100.

Staff and custmers at VIP Hairdressers in Walsoken also put on a successful coffee morning.

Walpole St Peter’s Art and Craft Club and the Rainbow Quilters joined forces to raise £633.25.

Leverington Village Hall Management Committee raised £500 during its event.

The March and Chatteris branch of Macmillan Cancer Support attended a host of coffee mornings across the area on Friday.

Members put on their own event in March Library on Wednesday, which was attended by 30 people and raised more than £150.

Chairman Gill Smith is appealing for people to contact her with the name of the person who registered Macmillan coffee mornings, where they were held and where the coffee morning pack was delivered to.

She said: “We can then claim the money to come back to the Fens.”
