The nationwide event, held in September each year, is the charity's largest fund-raiser and has raised millions of pounds over the years.

In our local area there were coffee mornings at various business and community organisations and here is a round-up of some of them.

Staff at Hinchingbrooke Hospital held a coffee morning in the Woodlands Centre, which was attended by staff and patients and the trust's chief executive Caroline Walker. The hospital said it had an "impressive turnout" and handed over £750 to Macmillan.

Just more than £113 was raised by staff, readers and advertisers who bought coffee and cakes at the Hunts Post coffee morning.
