Cakes and cuppas helped raise hundreds of pounds for charity as generous Isle folk took part in the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer.

In Epworth Carol Mellers helped organise an event at the Imperial Hall. She said: “A big thank you to everyone who supported it by coming, donating and working tirelessly to make it the best yet, raising the incredible sum of £900.
