People across the UK hosted Coffee Mornings to help raise money for Macmillan, with tons of delicious cakes on offer, donations are made on the day to support those living with cancer and their loved ones.

At Leightons, we brought in a huge selection of cakes and goodies that went down a treat, some even took cakes home to share with their families.

The charity offers advice, emotional support and financial guidance to those whose lives are affected by cancer. Every donation made to Macmillan makes a difference and the charity couldn’t be more thankful for the continued support they receive each year and the efforts of everyone who get involved.
