Staff at the Mark Leeson, on the Market Place, have raised £400 to help fight cancer.

The world’s biggest coffee morning is organised by Macmillan, the cancer support charity, and business and friends are invited to put the kettle on raise some cash.

Andrea Giles, assistant manager at the salon said: “We wanted to get involved because some of our clients and friends have been affected by cancer and we know the good work that Macmillan do.”

The charity provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care to patients and those closest to them.

Back in 1990 the charity held its first coffee morning and in the past 25 years £138 million has been raised.

Andrea added: “We have a salon full of clients all day and everyone is being so generous. We are not putting a price on the coffee and cakes but letting people make their own donations as you can’t put a price on the good work Macmillan do.”
