Thousands of pounds have been raised locally as part of the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event.

After a very successful ‘Brave the Shave’ event recently, Market Rasen Golf added to their fundraising total with a very well-supported coffee morning on Monday.

Stewardess Janet Parkinson, who is undergoing her own personal experience of cancer, was delighted to announce the final amount raised was £4,000, to be shared between Macmillan and Breast Cancer Care.

She added: “I can’t believe the support and kindness of everyone.

“It’s good to know I have so many people helping me fight this.”

In the Festival Hall committee room, Mayor John Matthews was one of those serving tea and cake at an event organised by fellow councillor Jo 
Pilley.

Jo said: “It was an opportunity for people to meet with councillors and raise money for a good cause. Thanks to Tesco and everyone else who donated cakes.”

Crafty charity supporters at Market Rasen’s Stitch Witch raised more than £364 at their Macmillan event.

The event was hosted by shop owner Gail Belinda Lee.

Gail said: “Every year we hold a charity event at this time of year and this has included a number of good causes over the years. We haven’t done Macmillan for quite some time, so we decided to join in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

“Thank you to everyone for their support.”

Pupils at Osgodby Primary School also did their bit, raising a whopping £312.50 from their coffee afternoon.
