Tons of cake and gallons of coffee consumed at Macmillan events

“We have raised almost £200, which is fantastic”.


Vicky Haslam helped organise a coffee morning at Tesco’s, Little Lever, between 10am-2pm on Saturday, Septemebr 26. The town hosted a number of events with one of the largest at Otley Cricket Club, where Bramhope resident Sarah Smith had once again organised a feast of refreshments and cakes, along with a prize raffle, for the cause. The winning cake was made by Mrs Clare Pennington who crafted a cake in the shape of a cup of coffee complete with teaspoon and biscuits.

Builders’ merchant Travis Perkins, on Pocklington’s Station Road, raised £131.15 at its coffee morning on Friday.

“I would also like to say a big thank you for everyone’s support of our Godiva Day with the Godiva Sisters”. Approximately £500 has been raised so far and there is more to come in.
