Two hotels served up a hefty slice of support for Macmillan Cancer Support when they raised £1,000 at a coffee morning on Saturday.

The Pier Hotel, Gorleston, and the Prom Hotel, Great Yarmouth, owned by Rodney Scott and his son Ian, each provided tea, coffee and cakes for customers in return for donations, plus a prize draw that included a £100 Strollers Restaurant voucher, a Mary Berry cookery hamper, a night's stay at the Pier Hotel and cinema-meal deal vouchers.

The events were run in association with Suffolk Freemasons.

'A big thank you to all Pier and Prom customers for supporting our coffee mornings,' said Rodney Scott. 'Macmillan does such important work for cancer patients and their families, and we are pleased to be able to support it through these events.'

In 2015, Macmillan Cancer Support reached 5.8 million people affected by cancer. Visit
