James Hall, commercial operations section manager at M&S Havant, said: ‘Each year Macmillan’s Coffee Morning is a massive moment in our calendar.

‘This year it feels more important than ever, with the ongoing impact of Covid-19 still being felt by so many people - in the UK alone, almost three million people are living with cancer and that figure is set to rise by four million by 2030.

‘My team and I have loved getting creative this year and our Percy Pig walk was a big challenge, but one I’m so proud we took on.

‘Thank you to everyone who has supported us.’
