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.

Lorna Willis fundraising manager for Norfolk and Suffolk said Yarmouth was a densely populated area with close knit communities that enjoyed a natter - perfect coffee drinking conditions.

She added that while fundraising was more challenging during the credit crunch, its funds were needed more than ever to help people with cancer.

Ms Willis said that because more people were surviving cancer the emphasis had shifted from palliative care to supporting the cancer journey from the bombshell of diagnosis to travelling for treatment.
