Cancer patients are set to benefit from hundreds of pounds thanks to the generosity of those who attended a Macmillan coffee morning in Sidmouth.

A small baking team at Hall and Scott Estate Agents put on a wonderful spread in aid of the cause which supports hundreds of thousands of cancer sufferers and their families across the UK.

Staff and visitors helped to raise £363 at the event which was held as part of the charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning drive.

Staff member Charlie Gwillim said: “We were so pleased with the success of our coffee morning. It was very well supported and in fact, people popped in throughout the day to make a contribution and to take-away a cake.”

Hall and Scott are currently looking for a local charity to support for the next 12 months and would welcome recommendations from anyone in the Sidmouth area who could suggest a worthy cause.

Email Julia Tuner on or send a letter to 113 High Street, Sidmouth, EX10 8LB before October 20 with your recommendation.
