Coffee and cakes

MacMillan Coffee Morning Raises Spirits and Funds

Every Wednesday, the Valees meet over coffee and pastries for a social chat, a catch-up, a conversation about any upcoming events and generally boosting an already strong sense community spirit here.

The latest event had something a little extra as the Valees chose to make it a Macmillan Coffee Morning, to raise funds for the cancer support charity.

Many of those who attended have the charity close to their hearts, having either experienced cancer or, like most of us, known someone who has. The usual pastries were replaced by specially iced buns and cakes and the generosity shown by everyone who donated the cost of their cuppa and cake, raised a magnificent £401 for Macmillan Cancer Support. 

The usual coffee service will resume next week.
