SCHOOLS and businesses from across Brighouse gave their backing to Macmillan Cancer Support for this year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

This is Macmillan’s biggest event and people were brewing up a storm to raise vital funds for the charity which supports people with cancer.

Last year 43,000 people from across the UK signed up to hold a coffee morning and raised over £8 million.

Events have been held at Bon Marche, Brighouse, which supports Macmillan throughout the year, Rastrick High School which got involved for the first time, Castlefields Infant School, Rastrick, who combined it with their scarecrow and greenfingers week, and St John’s CE Primary School, Clifton, who support the coffee morning event every year.

There was a fantastic response to all the events and people went to extraordinary lengths to make them a success.
