Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is returning this Friday, with coffee lovers of North Herts, Stevenage and beyond gathering to raise money for the cancer support charity.

Last year, Macmillan coffee mornings hosted in Hertfordshire raised more than £445,200 - with just shy of £27 million raised nationally.

In Stevenage, Our Mutual Friend in Broadwater Crescent will be open from 12 noon to 1pm on Friday afternoon, while Active Fitness Club in North Road will be combining coffee and cake with fun and games from 9am to 12pm.

Chells Dental Practice will be getting their teeth into some pastries on Thursday, from 9am to 5pm.

Holy Trinity Church in the High Street will be open from 10am to 12 noon, offering tea and coffee with an unusual Indian twist.

The Postels Club, in Old Town, will be running their event a week later, on Saturday, October 5, from 11am to 2pm - which will be followed by a spot of bingo.

There are two public events listed for Hitchin on the Macmillan website.
