A NEW county-wide survey has revealed a distinctly amorous side to Cambridgeshire's coffee drinkers.
The survey, carried out by Macmillan Cancer Research to promote its flagship World's Biggest Coffee Morning event, has found that almost half of Cambridgeshire's residents say a cup of coffee has led to a romantic entanglement or the start of a relationship.
Fourteen per cent of people surveyed said the most important cup of coffee they had ever had was on a first date, and 23 per cent love a gossip or to share exciting news over coffee - compared to just 14 per cent of folk from the Midlands.
"This shows that coming back for a coffee really can lead to something more exciting than a hot drink - just look at Romeo and Juliet!" said Anna Clayton, community fundraiser for Cambridgeshire.
"The survey is just a bit of fun, but what we really want is for everyone in the county to make their cup of coffee count on Friday, September 29, by taking part in Macmillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee Morning - getting together with friends, colleagues or relatives for a coffee is a simple and fun way of helping raise money to help local people living with cancer."
Now in its sixteenth year, World's Biggest Coffee Morning raised more than £6.5m last year, and it is hoped that coffee mornings across the country will top that total this year.
