Businesses across Ely got in the fundraising spirit last week by doing their part for Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Shops and businesses welcomed the public for a hot drink and cake as part of the charity’s annual fundraising event in their bid to tackle cancer.
Among those to put their kettles on were the Lemon Tree Deli, Inheritance Legal, Labour Tech, Johnsons Cleaners and East Cambridgeshire District Council’s planning department – and all were snapped by photographer Mike Rouse on Thurday (September 29).
Staff at Nellie’s Community Café in Sutton raised £771.44 by holding their coffee morning.
Helen, of Nellie’s, said: “We would like to thank everyone who attended the event, donated cakes or prizes and all of those who helped on the day.”
Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is the charity’s biggest fundraising event, with almost £30 million raised last year.
The first ever event was held in 1990 and since then it has raised over £165.5 million for Macmillan.
