Hours of preparation paid off as a coffee morning raised a hefty sum for a cancer charity.
Pat Chinnery and friends made in excess of £2,000 as they held their third Macmillan Coffee Morning at Toftwood Village Hall.
Fundraising stalls consisted of a raffle and tombola, as well as competitions including 'water or wine?', 'name the bears' and 'lucky balls'.
They were complemented by delicious homemade cakes of every description, size and flavour.
Despite fears that coronavirus would put people off, organisers were pleased to see dozens of people attend.
