Great Yarmouth is being asked to rally to the aid of a big charity cancer event next month.
Macmillan Cancer Support's Big Coffee Morning wants to encourage 200 hosts from across Yarmouth to join in with the fundraising event.
This year's Feeling Good theme aims to shrug off the economic gloom for a cuppa and chat - either at home with family and friends or on a wider scale at work.
