FRIENDS Audrey Glass and Shirley Paton sit back and share a hot cuppa at a coffee morning in aid of the Rowans Hospice.

The event was organised by the Hayling Support Group and held at the Hayling Island United Reformed Church.

Around £200 was raised for the Purbook-based cause during the coffee morning.

The mornings are held at the venue once a month.

Barbara Beck, of the Hayling Support Group, said: ‘It wasn’t unbelievably busy but I was told the village wasn’t busy either.

‘It is a good amount considering it was just after Christmas and people are counting the pennies!

‘The mornings are a nice social gathering for the people who go.

‘A lot of people that come here live alone and do their bit for the hospice.

‘It’s a very worthwhile cause.’
