TOWNSFOLK have been gathering together to enjoy a cuppa and raise money for a national fund-raiser.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was held on Friday, (September 28), and town organisations got in the spirit by holding their own events.
At St Stephens Playgroup, the coffee morning included a gingerbread themed raffle, with cake sold and donated by the families.
The Rednal youngsters helped to make cakes for the sale, and learned about the charity and how they can help people less fortunate than themselves.
Wayside Care Home had a special visitor at its coffee morning.
Muggy, the Macmillan Cancer Support mascot, joined staff and residents for its coffee morning.
Visitors were also invited along, and enjoyed a hot drink and a piece of cake.
A coffee morning was also held at the Bromsgrove branch of Barclays, in High Street.
Staff served a cuppa and a slice of something sweet to customers, David Hawthorn, the town’s branch manager said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee.
“The Macmillan team do a fantastic job supporting everyone affected by cancer so it is a pleasure to be able to support them.”
