Sylvia Hunt, general manager at Southerness Lighthouse Village, said: “Our sister, Michelle McCready, died of bone cancer aged just 23.We wanted to take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in her memory and were overwhelmed by the support.
“We were helped on the day by Tina Purdie, Julie Bardsley and Kate Gemmell and are grateful to all the home-bakers who brought along cakes, shortbread and even tablet.
“Joyce Mc Kend, from the mini-market, and Joan Jeffries, from the Cavens Arms in Dumfries, did us proud.
“It was wonderful to see so many people come along in Michelle’s name. She lived in Southerness so it is lovely that people still care.We raised £503.”
