Fylde folk put their feet up and the kettle on, to raise hundreds of pounds for a good cause.

The annual Lytham St Annes Men’s Forum fundraising coffee morning took place in the Dawson Hall of the White Church – Fairhaven United Reformed Church – in Fairhaven.

Members of the forum attended, along with Fylde civic dignitaries.

Members of the Fairhaven United Reformed Church supported the fundraising, by providing the refreshments – which included tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes.

There was a book stall, tombola, bric-a-brac and a grand raffle.

Each year the Lytham St Annes Men’s Forum holds a coffee morning to raise money for the president’s chosen charity.

This year’s president, David Hudson, chose the Yorkshire Cancer Centre as the beneficiary for the fundraising efforts. The event raised a grand total of £707 for the charity.

Fundraising for the centre helps supplement NHS budgets by purchasing ‘extras’ to help ensure patients receive the very best care.

Lytham St Annes Men’s Forum has been running since 1968, for friendship, goodwill and understanding.
