Kettles around the borough were working over time this weekend as many groups and residents held coffee mornings for MacMillan Cancer Support.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was a UK wide campaign run by the cancer and local residents got behind it 100%.
The Royal British Legion in Antrim held their coffee mornings on Friday, were buns and freshly brewed coffee helped raise money for the very important charity.
There was an excellent turnout at Neillsbrook Fold with residents getting involved and enjoying a nice tray bake.
Meanwhile Paul and Wendy Smyth opened their Antrim home for a Coffee Morning on Saturday and raised over £700 for the charity.
Wendy’s mother the late Martha Stewart, died at the Macmillan Palliative Unit earlier this year and the family wished to acknowledge the wonderful support that they and Wendy’s mother received whilst she was at the Unit.
Daughter Ellie decided to go the extra mile and do a sponsored silence for five days. She arranged this with her school and has raised over £200 in her grandmother’s memory.
