Villagers in Bedfield, near Framlingham, raised more than £1,000 through their annual Macmillan coffee morning - one of many events held around Suffolk for the charity.

Many people in the village have family or friends who have needed the help of Macmillan Cancer Support, so it's a cause close to their hearts.

The organisers were Miranda Courteen, Suzie Carr and Debbie Pritchard. Helpers turned up early to set up an outdoor cafe and decorate the garden with bunting in the Macmillan colours of green and purple.

A huge variety of cakes were donated to sell, and four cakes worthy of the Great British Bake Off "show stopper" label were auctioned off. There was also a raffle, a crafts and produce stall and a treasure hunt.

The organisers said: "Thank you to the coffee and cake lovers from the village and from further afield for coming to show their support and for being so generous."
