Vol­un­teers from Reach Out And Re­cover (ROAR), a char­ity work­ing with re­cov­er­ing ad­dicts, raised more than £100 at their event at St Ge­orge’s Church, at­tended by Mac­cles­field Cen­tral Ward Coun­cil­lor Bev­er­ley Doo­ley.

Vic­to­ria Lowe, ROAR vol­un­teer, said: “We raised a fan­tas­tic to­tal of £133.97 selling cof­fee and cakes baked by our ser­vice users, sup­port­ers and friends. We also had a baked or faked game with blind­folds to guess which was which. A fun morn­ing was had by all.”

Hun­dreds of thou­sands of the events took place across the UK, with Macmil­lan es­ti­mat­ing more than 5 mil­lion cups of cof­fee were drunk and 12 mil­lion slices of cake con­sumed.
