Fundraisers of all ages got their baking hats on in Banburyshire for Macmillan’s World Biggest Coffee Morning.

The national event sees people bake lots of cakes to sell for the charity and lots of schools, businesses and organisations took part last weekend.

Among them included children in Years Five and Six at Great Tew Primary School, who adopted a French theme and spoke the language to customers. Rebecca Catling, class teacher said: “It went really well and the children loved it as they understood what we were raising money for.”

Elsewhere in Banburyshire, customers at Foodies in Deddington raised more than £700 after they baked cakes last Friday. Simon Yeomans, owner, said: “The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer, and we are proud to be supporting this very worthwhile event. We would like to say a huge thank you to our customers at Foodies who have been so generous.”

Bodicote Sewing Circle also did their part last Friday by hosting a coffee morning in the village hall. They raised £340 from coffee and cake sales and along with two large donations they managed to raise £500.
