The coffee morning will be held at Dogsthorpe fire station between 10.30am and 12.30pm on Friday September 6. As well as coffee and cake to tempt local residents, there will also be a raffle to help raise money for charity.

Local partners will also be joining the event, including U3A Peterborough, POW Young People’s Drug and Alcohol Service, City College Peterborough, CP Learning Trust, Community Hydrotherapy, and Age UK.

‎Angela Kenny‎, Business Support Officer at Dogsthorpe Fire Station and event organiser said: “We are very keen to support Macmillan’s national campaign again this year as well as The Fire Fighter’s Charity.

"Last year we raised over £1000 during our coffee mornings and we hope to beat it this year. Supporting the cause gives us a great opportunity to open our bay doors and let the local community come in and see us at the fire station.

"As well as serving tea and coffee, we’ll be on hand to offer fire safety advice and visitors will also be able to visit stalls by other local organisations and charities too.

"We’re really looking forward to the event and hopefully lots of people will come and see us so we can raise as much money as possible for two charities close to our hearts.”

Donations will be split between Macmillan Cancer Support and The Fire Fighters Charity.
