Cuppas, cakes and coffees were had in aid of charity as organisations and businesses had a brew on Macmillan.

It was all part of the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event.

Things got underway at the Macmillan unit at Calderdale Royal Hospital which also hosted a charity raffle and was attended by the Mayor, coun Ann Martin and her consort, Mohammad Naeem.

Lead cancer nurse, Alison Harwood, said: “We’re proud to host our fifth annual Macmillan coffee morning to support a brilliant cause that makes a difference to so many people.”

Also hosting its own coffee morning was the Salvation bar in Halifax.

Manager Phil Percy, whose Grandma has recently been diagnosed with cancer, said: “All the staff have got their baking hats on.”

Others also taking part were The Edge Play Gym and Cafe in Elland which raised £160, houses at Belvoir Gardens bringing in £570, the CC & Viyella department and cafe at Harveys of Halifax, M&S Halifax, Leeds Building Society Halifax branch, local schools, churches and more.
