Great British Bake Off eat your heart out - north Norfolk's cooks surpassed themselves with cakes ranging from the elegant to the down-to-earth and scrumptious, all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Thousand of pounds were raised across the district on Friday, this year's Macmillan Biggest Coffee Morning date, and days around it.
Among local events were:
? SiS held its annual Coffee Morning and Walk in aid of Macmillan Cancer support on Friday September 23, at St Peter's Church Hall, Sheringham, raising £879. More than 30 walkers took part in a Fit Together walk, some of whom had sponsors.
? Purdy's Tea Room, based at Woodgate Nursery in Aylsham, hosted a Macmillan Coffee Day on Friday, September 30, which included a charity raffle to win a hamper full of tea room and nursery goodies, worth over £50. All hot drink proceeds sold throughout the day went to the charity, with the tea room also offering Macmillan-themed cakes, including a selection of butterfly cupcakes, raising more than £700 for Macmillan.

Macmillan Cancer Support says: 'One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we'll ever have to face.
'Our goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, we're there for friends and family too.'
