Dunmow’s Town Crier, Richard Harris, summoned the townspeople of Dunmow to the Macmillan Coffee Morning at the “Cafe Beyond the Alley” on Friday (September 25).
And the coffee and cake raised over £2,000 for the charity.
Organiser Claire Reeve said: “It was a great success. The weather made all the difference and we had a great crowd in the yard behind Sweetland’s butchers in Stortford Road.
“Each year I have the most wonderful support from family, friends, customers, suppliers and the general public. Richard Harris, the Town Crier, invited shoppers in the town to the café, Beresfords estate agent advertised the event on their boards throughout the locality and James & Co let me tie a banner to their railings.
“There must have been a record number of home-made cakes handed in, including a beautifully decorated Macmillan cake and a great variety of raffle prizes donated.”

She added: “I’m grateful to Peter Sweetland, my boss for allowing me to take over his premises for the 15th year running.
“Great Dunmow has a very generous community and I’m always amazed at the amount of money raised. Donations keep coming in and the figure now stands at £2,178.51 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Over the years we have raised £23,000. I’d like to say a big thank you to all those who made that possible.”
