Kettles were boiling in unison across the Melton borough in support of The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning - Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event.

Following on from last week’s coverage in the Melton Times here are some more photos of those who supported this year’s campaign by hosting coffee mornings.

Brooksby Melton College held its very own ‘Great Brooksby Bake Off’ event at its Brooksby campus. Organiser Tracey Duncan said: “The students baked cakes and invited guests to have tea on the lawn. Altogether we raised £199.72.”

A coffee morning held in the gardens of two houses on Baldocks Lane, Melton, raised over £370 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Sherard Primary School children and parents made cakes for their Macmillan coffee morning which raised £411.

Other participants included Barnstone Cement Works, who raised £157, the residents of Mowbray and Gretton Court, who raised £148.17 and Melton Breast Cancer Support Group, who gathered at Melton Baptist Church.

On Saturday, Syston Library will be holding a coffee morning between 10am-noon where staff and volunteers will be serving tea, coffee and cakes.
