Tea, coffee and cake helped raised hundreds for a charitable cause at a coffee morning in Downham last week.

Homecare service Prestbury Care, based in Stow Bridge, organised the event at Downham Town Hall last Friday which gathered almost £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Quality manager and director Chloe Convoy said: “It went really well, we raised £196.50. All of us that own the company have always worked with people with some form of cancer, so we decided to hold a coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support as they do a brilliant job.”

This was Prestbury Care’s first coffee morning, having been established in July last year, but there are plans to organise more in the future.

Chloe said: “We are looking at holding a coffee morning once a month.”

Prestbury Care is also hosting a drop-in information morning at Downham Methodist Church on Tuesday from 10am to 12pm.
