Visitors to The Mercury Mall in Romford were invited to have a cake and a cuppa on Friday, 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.

“We raised a staggering £265.35 proving, once again, just how generous shoppers can be.”
