On Saturday residents took a break from their shopping to enjoy cakes and support The Mercury in raising money for Macmillan.
Visitors to The Mercury Mall in Romford were invited to have a cake and a cuppa on Saturday, September 28 as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
As well as a mouthwatering selection of cakes baked by members of the Mercury’s staff and Breakfast Club ladies, there were also knitted and crocheted novelty cakes as soft toys for children and handmade cards.
Karen Sach, Helpdesk Ambassador of The Mercury said: “Last year we raised a staggering £265.35 and this year an amazing £743.20 proving, once again, just how generous our shoppers can be.”
