COFFEE (and tea) drinkers supped a cuppa last Friday and joined Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

Visitors to The Coach House Restaurant, in Stable Yard, Hatfield Park, enjoyed free tea and coffee, in return for a donation to Macmillan, which provides invaluable support for cancer sufferers and their families.

In total, the event raised £568 and was well supported by those who enjoyed a cuppa while basking in glorious sunshine and listening to a live saxophonist in Stable Yard.

Meanwhile another coffee morning took place in Welwyn, at the home of Macmillan Welwyn Hatfield committee-member Anne Kimpton, where 80s pop star Kim Wilde made an appearance.

Workers at Acacia Street retirement home in Hatfield raised more than £100 with a coffee morning in conjunction with Mears care staff.

Spokeswoman Agnes Wiseman said: “It went really well, we raised £131 and we had donations from Morrisons and the Dutch Nursery.”

Last year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning raised a staggering £7.9m nationwide.
