HUGE support from the community for a Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning event in Llanddowror enabled it to raise £1,125.

Talfan Farm, the home of Mark Tucker and Jean Cory, was the venue for the fundraiser on Saturday September 29.

The event was organised by Jean, who said: "It was our aim to exceed last year's £850 - and we were so pleased to have done this."

Ideal weather enabled people to enjoy their coffees and cakes at tables and chairs outside in the sunshine.

Alongside the wonderful cake stall were stalls featuring bric-a-brac, books, DVDs, CDs and clothes.

Julie Cooper made jewellery for sale, with all profits to Macmillan, and there were many raffle prizes donated by local businesses and friends.

Gaynor Phelps did a grand job of promoting the Bonus Ball competition, and this also raised substantial funds.

The highlight of the morning was an auction conducted by Nigel Hodson of Peter Francis Auctioneers, which also boosted the event's final total.

Added Jean: "Very many thanks to those who supported us by giving so generously of their time and effort - those who donated money, items for the raffle, books, bric-a-brac, the wonderful selection of home-made cakes.

"A special thanks to Mark Tucker, Myra Tucker, Ellie Williams and Julie and Keith Cooper, who helped set up the night before.

"We are all absolutely thrilled to have been able to help Macmillan and the wonderful support they give to cancer patients, and we hope that next year we will be able to match (or even exceed) this year's figure."
