Community groups across south Norfolk are getting ready to take on cancer in a very British way - with a cuppa, a few biscuits and a friendly chat.

Venues across the region will host World's Biggest Coffee Morning events on Friday, September 29 to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The newly-opened Roots Community Cafe is among those taking part with an event from 10am to 1pm at Wymondham Baptist Church.

Eve Cooper, from the cafe, said she hoped everyone would consider coming along to a coffee morning event and help to beat cancer.

She said: 'We all believe that Macmillan is a worthy cause because of the amazing work they do to support people who are going through the life-changing cancer diagnosis.

'By raising the profile of the charity through selling cakes and donating the profits it may well help someone who is facing this disease to realise there is help out there.

'Unfortunately cancer is so common now that most people will have had some contact with it and many people value the work charities like Macmillan do.'
