FUND-raisers throughout the Bridlington area have been raising a coffee cup in support of a cancer charity.

Pictured are some of those who have taken part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning which has raised thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The aim of the event, which has become Macmillan’s flagship annual fund-raiser, is for people to hold coffee mornings in their homes, communities or work places to help raise vital funds for the charity which supports all those affected by cancer.

It was the first time that the Ship Inn, at Sewerby have taken part in the event and it proved to be a great success, featuring ‘Wardy’s surprise cakes’, raising more than £200. Residents and their friends at Middleton Court, in Bridlington raised more than £373 at their coffee morning.

Middleton Court manager Jackie Moore said: “We are absolutely thrilled with how it went and the residents are delighted as well as quite a few of the residents have been helped by Macmillan.”

Staff at Barclay’s Bank, on Manor Street raised £513 at their coffee morning and tombola which will be doubled by the bank making a grand total of £1,026.

All items on the tombola stall were donated by local businesses and friends of the Bridlington and Filey branches of the bank. Also pictured is Free Press gardening columnist Graham White who held a coffee morning at The Green House, on Flamborough Road.

The event raised £65, with more donations still to come, and Graham has said a big thank you to everyone who supported it.
