South Norfolk residents have raised a cuppa and biscuit to help the fight against cancer.
The region hosted dozens of events on Friday, September 29 as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Residents of the Oak Tree Park estate in Attleborough were among those joining in, collecting £429 for the cause.
The money was raised through donations, a raffle with prizes donated by residents and Wicklewood’s Paddocks Butchery, and a book ‘swap’.
There were also competitions were entrants had to guess the height of a cake and the number of marshmallows in a jar.
A show-stopping cake made for the event was later donated to patients and staff at Priscilla Bacon Hospice in Norwich, where one resident of the estate is currently receiving care.
Coffee morning events held across the country have raised more than £165.5 million for Macmillan since they began in 1990.
