CAKE and coffee were on offer throughout Wyre Forest for Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Tasty treats were the order of the day at Burlish Park Primary School, in Stourport, where year two pupils invited family and friends to raise £197.
Teacher Kerry Bryan said:”The children worked really hard designing posters, writing invitations and making decorations in preparation for the event.”
Neighbours and friends met to support a coffee morning which took place at Gill and Gary Johnson’s home in Coningsby Drive.
They raised £94.50 with donated cake, a raffle and a bring and buy sale.
Students, staff and open morning visitors at Kidderminster’s Holy Trinity International School enjoyed a cake and a hot drink for Macmillan.
Each of the four houses dressed in the typical dress of Hungary, South Africa, South America and Britain as well as decorating cakes in their national colours to raise £600.
Head student Chelsea Savoy said: “We really enjoy taking part in the annual Macmillan coffee morning. Students, parents and staff relish the opportunity to sample homemade cakes and sweets that are on sale in our senior school, helping us to raise much needed funds to support the fantastic work which Macmillan does.”
A coffee morning was also held for 60 people at Milton Hall Baptist Church where visitors could enjoy a bring and buy stall and a variety of cakes, pickles and jam.
The fundraiser raised £372.23 for Macmillan Cancer support.
