Macmillan coffee mornings have been taking place across the country, with over £2 million being raised so far to help support people suffering from cancer.

Many places have done their bit by hosting a get-together to share a cuppa and raise some funds for the worthy cause.

Locally, there were coffee mornings in homes, offices, schools, cafes and workplaces.

Blossoms cafe in Torwood Garden Centre hosted one and raised a massive £1924. Local singers Katie and Eddie entertained customers and in the afternoon youngsters got to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Cafe worker Lindsay Miller said: “It was a fantastic day that was busy all the way through to the end with people willing to donate money to the charity.”

Airth Primary School managed to collect over £1590 and the school children presented the cheque to Macmillan funding ambassador, Carol Pollock.

In Grangemouth, M’s Vapours hosted a coffee morning and raised £224.63. Worker Shanon Fawley said: “It was a great morning and lots of people donated money to Macmillan.”

The charity is celebrating its 25th anniversary of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and hopes to continue its work in helping people suffering from cancer as well as fund research.
