MacMillan Coffee Morning at Marshside

I was very pleased to accept an invitation from Cllr Pat Keith to attend the MacMillan Coffee morning at St Patrick's in Marshside, and not just because I knew if  Pat was involved the cakes would be excellent-and they were.

We all know what an excellent MacMillan cancer care does in our communities and it  was good to see so many folk turn up to support Pat, Sue and their friends who put on the event.

This morning Pat posted an update:

A message from Pat Keith...
Well done everyone for making our Macmillan Coffee Morning such a great success. Thanks to your generosity we raised more than £250 for this great charity.
A huge thanks to those who baked such magnificent cakes and donated raffle prizes. Also thanks to our Mayor, Iain Brodie Browne, for coming along and making the occasion special and for eating so much cake. But who could resist? The cakes were mouth-watering and not a soggy bottom in sight... looks out Mary Berry!
As the Macmillan logo states cake tastes better when people are together and, as well as being a fundraiser for a great cause, our coffee morning turned into a lovely social occasion.
