West Bank residents host successful Macmillan coffee morning
THOUSANDS of pounds was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support across Halton at the world’s biggest coffee morning.
Big-hearted residents in West Bank teamed up to bake delicious cakes, scones and buns.
They organised a bric-a-brac stall and raffle at the visitor centre in Spike Island and raised £514 on Friday.
Julie Baker, of housing organisation Keepmoat, said: “It was absolutely fantastic. People down in West Bank are brilliant.
“They get behind everything. They came down on the day, helped set up and served behind the counter.
“There is a great community spirit there.”
The Mayor of Halton, Clr Margaret Ratcliffe and her consort husband, Ernie joined Halton MP Derek Twigg and Halton Council leader, Clr Rob Polhill at the event.
West Bank Clr Pam Wallace donated raffle prizes.
Keepmoat hosted the coffee morning with West Bank Community Forum and Catch 22, a project which is seeking funding to set up a cafe in Spike Island.
