A Sheffield funeral director has been raising money for a charity which supports those suffering from cancer.

C&A Reed hosted a joint Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning at St Aidan’s Church in Sheffield and raised nearly £500.

Coffee, tea, biscuits and cakes were available for a donation and funeral service arranger, Kay Jessop, had a stall selling items.

The Dignity Charity Fairground Organ played by John Neal provided the musical entertainment.

Stacey Allen, secretary at Churches Together said: “We managed to raise a fantastic £474.41 for a very worthwhile cause. 
“There were 74 children and teachers also present on the morning from Manor Lodge Primary School and John did a wonderful job of entertaining them. Kay and John worked hard as a team and were both very professional and community spirited.”

Kay said: “We always have a really good turn out to any charity event we hold and this was no different.

“We would like to thank everyone who attended on the day and donated so generously to this worthwhile charity.”

In the past 13 years Macmillan has raised over £23 million through the coffee mornings.
