Coffee mornings being planned in aid of charity

Have your say

VENUES across the area are preparing to host coffee mornings to raise cash for a good cause.

The annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event is taking place on Friday, September 30 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Fareham Borough Council and Ferneham Hall have teamed up for the event, and are holding a coffee morning at the hall from 10am to 2pm.

Mayor of Fareham Cllr Connie Hockley will be attending from 10am.

She said: ‘I invite everyone to come along for a slice of cake, a coffee and a chat to help us raise money for this worthy cause.

‘Every penny raised will go to this important charity.

‘I look forward to meeting you all and tasting the cakes.’

There will also be a raffle and competitions with prizes and the mayor will judge the best cake.

Another business planning on opening up its showroom for the cause is Solent Mobility Centre in High Street, Lee-on-the-Solent.

Office manager Liz Kelly said the coffee morning will take place from 10am until 2pm, with mayor of Gosport Lynn Hook due at 10.30am.
