The famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom was turned into a tea room for the morning – for a good cause and a very special reason.
The Tower hosted a World’s Biggest’s Coffee Morning event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, in memory of a treasured former employee at the historic venue, Carole Johnson, who died recently.
The ballroom team gave their time to serve tea, coffee, breakfast muffins and cakes – donated by local companies and made by Tower staff and their families – for three hours.
There was music from the Wurlitzer organ and the Blackpool and Fylde Choir.
It came as scores of people and organisations held their own Macmillan Biggest Coffee Morning events across the Fylde coast.
Among them were Fylde Christian Service Church in St Annes, Clifton Christian Centre in Mereside, Guys Court Care Home on Poulton Road, Fleetwood, Stanley Park Cafe, Marton Methodist Church, Skipton Building Society Cleveleys branch on Bispham Road and the Same Day Health Centre at Fleetwood. Lytham Coffee Co gave free coffee to all customers for the day and asked them to make a donation for Macmillan.
