A retirement home group – with homes in March and Burwell – have raised more than £540 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Jubilee Court in March and Ness Court in Burwell, both owned by Sanctuary Retirement Living, took part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ event.
In March, staff held a raffle and cake sale and in Burwell, staff also held a cake sale and staged cake-themed games, all to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan.
A spokesperson for Sanctuary Retirement Living said: “With the ongoing social distancing restrictions, they couldn’t hold their usual big coffee mornings.
“So instead, staff at both services decided to do ‘Mobile Macmillan’ and delivered the cakes and sweet treats directly to residents’ apartment doors.
