The annual event raises funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and everyone from Indian restaurants to funeral directors in East Cambs signed up to take part.

At Nellie’s Community Café, in Scott Court, Sutton, organisers raised an impressive £665.85. Helen Malkin said: “We would like to thank everyone that came along, donated cakes or prizes and helped make this a successful day.”

In Prickwillow, the village branch of the Women’s Institute hosted an event in the village hall and added £348.70 to the cause. Melanie O’Farrell said: “We had a great morning with lots of very generous visitors, yummy cakes, homemade jams and chutneys. We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who makes the effort to support this wonderful cause.”
