The world's biggest coffee morning returns today - and will see hundreds of people across Lowestoft and Waveney raising money for a cancer charity at work and at home.
The Macmillan coffee mornings began back in 1990 and since then, they have gone on to raise £138million for the cancer support charity.
There are events going throughout the area and, across the country, it is hoped the event will raise more than last year's record of £25million.
Peter and Christine White, at The Angel Inn, Wangford, are hosting a coffee morning and have got the whole village to bake cakes especially.
Mrs White said that it was a charity worth supporting.

'Everyone is touched by cancer - if not personally then someone very close to them and everyone may need a Macmillan nurse at some point,' he said.
St Margaret's Primary Academy is also taking part. Staff, parents and pupils have brought in cakes, scones and biscuits from home to be sold at the school to raise money.
