A Walsoken hair salon raised over £2,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support with a coffee morning.

VIP Hair hosted a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in September and raised a magnificent £2,054.70.

The coffee morning was held outside the salon as the stylists were busy working in the salon. The weather was kind and, with help from volunteers and friends, the morning was a great success.

Salon owner Linda Pepper said: “We have to thank so many people for donating wonderful cakes, preserves, flowers, plants, handicrafts, produce and raffle prizes. Because so many people come into the salon, we are able to start raising funds about six weeks before the day as so many people wanted to join in with this amazing cause.”
