Cups will be clinking across North Devon this Friday as Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning returns.

Schools, businesses, community groups, village halls and private homes will be among those hosting events in the next week to help people and their families living with cancer.

The Gazette is marking the occasion today (Wednesday) with a big cake sale at our offices in Old Station Road, Barnstaple – just pop in for a tasty cake in return for a donation to Macmillan.

Last year nationally the event raised £25 million and this year it is hoped to raise even more.

Staff at the Big Sheep have already raised £482.22 for Macmillan.

Their coffee morning also featured a special Big Sheep Bake-Off, which saw 10 staff create sweet showstoppers.

Marketing manager Clare Corry scooped the star baker award with her chocolate Guinness cake.

Supporting the event once again as main sponsor is M and S, with M and S Barnstaple hosting a coffee morning from 10am on Friday.

Fremington School will also be running one from 9-11am, with homemade cakes and a draw.

Torrington police will be holding a coffee morning on Tuesday (October 4) at the fire station from 10.30am-12noon and have invited the town’s fire fighters to join them for a Police v Fire Bake Off.
