Accrington Observer - - NEWS - STU­ART PIKE news­desk@men-news.co.uk @MENnews­desk

BEV­ER­AGES have been brewed and cakes baked all over Hyn­d­burn in aid of this year’s World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing fundraiser.

St Anne’s and St Joseph’s Ac­cring­ton raised £300. Bak­ers of the parish worked hard and pro­duced a ‘lovely se­lec­tion of cakes’ for sale.

A ‘guess the weight of the cake’ com­pe­ti­tion also raised ex­tra funds and was won by Mar­garet Wil­son.

The Mayor and May­oress of Hyn­d­burn were spe­cial guests at a cof­fee morn­ing on Septem­ber 27 at Syd­ney Street Sports & So­cial Club in Ac­cring­ton, also rais­ing £300 for the Macmil­lan nurses.

They were also joined by Coun Tony Dob­son at North Lancs Train­ing Group for a cof­fee morn­ing, which raised £221.80.

A bingo and cake af­ter­noon will be held this Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 7, at 1.30pm at the Brooks Club in Ac­cring­ton. The Accy Rock­ers will be per­form­ing. Tick­ets will cost £5 and are avail­able from Natalie on 07711 834738.

And a Macmil­lan af­ter­noon tea has been or­gan­ised on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 17 at Wood­lands Home for Older Peo­ple on War­wick Av­enue in Clay­ton-le-Moors from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.
