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.
