A coffee and cake morning which is raising money for people with cancer will take place behind Sweetlands, in Dunmow, on September 28.

The coffee morning, which is part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, has been held at Sweetlands since 2001 and is known as ‘The Cafe Beyond the Alley’.

There will be homemade cakes, cups of coffee, tea and a raffle, and the event will run from 10am until 12pm and take place at the yard behind Sweetlands butchers.

Organiser Claire Reeve, whose dad was diagnosed with throat cancer before he died in 1999, said: “Over the years the coffee morning has grown. We have made more than £2,000 for the last few years. It’s a very good cause. Everyone knows someone that has been touched by cancer.”

If you cannot attend the morning, but would like to donate, contact Claire on 01371 873768.
