A Co-op coffee morning generated funds to support the supermarket’s community giving scheme.

Saturday’s town hall fundraiser, which included a raffle, baking and bottle stall, made £540.

Staff members roped in family and friends to help man the stalls and serve the tea, coffee and biscuits.

A Co-op spokesperson said: ‘Big thanks to the staff and a couple of our customers for their donations of baking, etc.

‘Also a huge thanks to our volunteers on the day: Val, Alison, Wilma, Elizabeth, Shanna, Ricky and Nannie.’

Alicia Graham and Shanna Brown took entry money and manned the ‘guess the weight of the dumpling’ stall. 50_c47coop01
