Brews have been drunk and slices of cake were devoured all over the borough today as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Little Flowers Private Day Nursery in Church enjoyed a great turnout at its coffee morning and have raised a total of £209.84 so far, with more to come from a cake sale on Friday night.
Deputy manager Rachael Liggins said: “We held a raffle, games, coffee and cakes and we even had a visit from the Mayor and Mayoress of Accrington. It was a great turnout and the staff did a fantastic job for this great cause. Well done to everyone and thank you for all your donations.”
