The best of Herefordshire hospitality has created a huge stir for the World's Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Some 250 homes and businesses around the county put the kettle on to host an event.

Some offered additional activities to promote local produce and raise extra funds. At Ledbury Tourist Information Centre a grand draw with prizes donated by local businesses helped to raise over 1000. At Glazydayz in Ledbury visitors were invited to paint their hands and 'hug a mug' for Macmillan. At the Riverside Inn in Aymestrey Head Chef Andy Link offered a cookery demonstration.

In Hereford there was quite a stir when Macmillan fundraiser Stuart Kettell, unbelievably cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats on a penny farthing, dropped in to the city centre for the coffee morning.

It is hoped that the flagship event will raise 45,000 for Macmillan in Herefordshire. Sarah Grout, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said "We'd like to send out a huge 'thank you' to all our hosts and visitors who supported the World's Biggest Coffee Morning. By raising a cup with friends, family, colleagues and visitors you are helping to change the lives of people affected by cancer."
