Local Kirby Cross residents raised £749 for Macmillan Nurses at a coffee morning on Saturday. The event was held as a local effort in support of a national fundraising scheme.
Organised by Norman Martin at the Masonic Lodge building at Kirby Cross, the event was attended by local MP, Douglas Carswell, and dozens of local people.
"From my casework in the constituency, I know just what a wonderful job Macmillan nurses do. They really makes such a difference to people with cancer.
Well done to everyone at the coffee morning. It was a really worthwhile event - and great to see so many people!
I'll be using some of the damsons I bought at the coffee morning to make lots of jam"
