Freshly-baked cakes and sausage rolls were on sale in the council chamber at Fenland Hall, and there was also a raffle and dress down day for council staff on Thursday (September 28).

The following day, the council’s environmental staff also held a coffee morning at The Base in Melbourne Avenue with cakes and pizza on offer, taking the council’s total fundraising to an impressive £948.

Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is the charity’s biggest fundraising event, with almost £30 million raised last year.

The first ever event was held in 1990 and since then it has raised over £165.5 million for Macmillan.
