Marvellous coffee morning for cancer charity

Coffee and cake lovers across mid Norfolk had a 'marvellous' time at schools, caf�s, pubs and gardens for the Macmillan Cancer coffee morning today (Friday).

At Little Snoring Primary School, near Fakenham, children, parents and grandparents enjoyed homemade cakes and a raffle.

Organiser Yvonne King, 25, from Little Snoring, said: 'It is really nice. There are people talking to people who would not normally talk to each other. The kids are really enjoying themselves.'

She added: 'Cancer is a really awful disease and it does affect a lot of people.'

Jill Drewry, 77, who opened up her Briston house for the fourth year in a row, raised just over �1,163 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

She said: 'I'm exhausted and thrilled to bits. The girls who helped me have been marvellous.'

At Caf� Verde on the South Green Park Enterprise Centre, Mattishall, a coffee morning organised by teaching assistant Lynn Reeson attracted 150 people.
