Shoppers were invited to have a cake and cup of tea on Saturday, September 28 as part of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning.

As well as a mouthwatering selection of cakes baked by members of the Mercury's staff and Breakfast Club ladies, there were also knitted and crocheted novelty cakes as soft toys for children and handmade cards.

Karen Sach, helpdesk ambassador at The Mercury, said: "Our MacMillan coffee morning was amazing, we are so grateful to our retailers, Breakfast Club members and work colleagues for their donations and brilliant cake making contributions.

"We were overwhelmed with the array of cakes. It looked delightful.
