Biggest coffee event expanded in Bodmin
SUPPORTERS for Macmillan Cancer Relief gathered in three locations across Bodmin to take part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
This year was the 23rd nationwide coffee morning organised to raise money for the charity, which provides vital support for cancer sufferers.
First it was the turn of Bodmin Police Station, with police inquiry officers Elaine Fell and Rona Price and force chaplain Sheila Bawden organising tea, cake and bacon bap events across the week. In total the ladies managed to raise more than £400. On Friday Callywith Road-based firm GP Strategies held a three-hour coffee event at BCA Rooms, raising £130.37.
Organiser Becky Boyle said this year's event was far more successful than last year.

"Last year we held it at the office up on Callywith Road so nobody came in, but this year we had around 25 people pop in so we're very pleased," she said.
On Saturday a coffee morning was held on Midway Road, organised by Derek Hoskin of the Midway Road Neighbourhood Watch.
"We managed to raise £258 in two hours, it was a really great morning and we're thrilled," Mr Hoskin said.
"The mayor, Ken Stubbs, came to open the event and lots of people donated cakes, prizes and raffles, so it was really successful."
