The Macmillan Coffee Morning held at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 28 September has raised £700 for the cancer support charity.
A packed village hall was treated to a fantastic selection of homemade cakes, cupcakes, tartlets and other treats by organiser Jane Allison and her team of volunteers.
A raffle was held too, with many prizes donated by local firms. Visit Nunney donated £50 to cover the village hall hire, although the Nunney Village Hall committee had generously allowed the use of the hall for free.
In the end hardly a crumb was left of all the cakes, with many villagers going home armed with a piece of cake for later.
Jane Allison said afterwards: “It was just fabulous. The generosity of people in our little sleepy Somerset village is brilliant, I am totally bushed, elated, and will have enormous pleasure in banking the money to Macmillan.”
“On behalf of Macmillan, I thank every single business all local for their donations from hard cash to wonderful gifts for the raffle.”
“A huge thank you to each and every baker whose cakes, tarts, quiche, buns, biscuits that were so scrummy, to the youngsters who made cakes, to local groups who paid for incidental, to my incredibly generous children who gave days off work to come an support me, the school for bring the children with their pennies, our older ladies and gents who come powered by walking sticks and kindly neighbours!”
