Marion Thurling, along with members of the Dales Women's Institute (WI) once again took part in Macmillan Cancer Support's 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' on Friday, September 29.

The event was held at Bloodmoor Hill Community Centre, in Carlton Colville, and raised £775.

A range of craft, book and jewellery stalls were set up to help raise as much money as possible for the charity. A raffle with a variety of prizes was also held to boost the fundraising.

A separate raffle was held for a beautiful handmade quilt donated by Janet Hammond's craft club. The quilt alone raised $323.
