It was a case of raising a cuppa and raising funds at a recent coffee morning held by the Poulton Friends Of Trinity Hospice.

The event took place at The Bridge Club, Poulton, and included stalls selling cakes, preserves, jewellery, bric-a-brac and a raffle.

It raised more than £693, which will go towards helping Bispham-based Trinity Hospice carry out its vital work – providing care and support for people with terminal illness and life-limiting conditions across the Fylde coast.

The friends organise regular fundraising events for the hospice, including a monthly coffee morning.

Beryl Moran, from the Poulton Friends of Trinity Hospice, said: “The May coffee morning had another excellent turnout.

“It was a very enjoyable morning and raised £693, thanks to a lot of hard work by the group members and the loyal support of our regular customers.”
