Burnham-On-Sea fundraisers join world's biggest coffee morning

Scores of Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge residents headed to fundraising coffee mornings on Friday and Saturday as part of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning.

Events were held to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of the annual fundraiser.

Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge's Mayor, Cllr Bill Hancock, said: "It's marvellous to see the towns pulled out all the stops this year with their support."

"It's such a great cause and brings people together in a positive way across our local community."

Scores of local events were held, including at The Princess Theatre where a coffee and cake morning plus a Table Top sale was attended by the Mayor and Mayoress.

Local businesses in Burnham also held their own events, including CJ Hole estate agents, right.

A Macmillan coffee and cake day was also held on Saturday at Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club on The Esplanade, organised by Tracey Stroud, which was well supported.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan's flagship event. Last year, over 50,000 people signed up to the coffee morning, raising over £10million for the charity. Macmillan improves the lives of people affected by cancer, providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support.
