The owner of a Blackpool hotel showed her support for those suffering from cancer with a charity coffee morning.

Lyndsay Fieldsend and her 12-year-old daughter Jasmine held the social event at the Trafalgar Hotel last Wednesday.

They successfully raised £670 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Lyndsay said: “My uncle just passed away recently and my cousin is terminally ill with cancer.

“I wanted to get behind her and do anything I can to help Macmillan.

“The nurses have been so supportive.

“I wanted to do a coffee morning where people could come and light a candle and read some literature.

“It was extremely successful. We were still making coffee and serving cakes from 10am until 7pm.

“My 12-year-old daughter made the cakes, which went down very well.

“We do it once a year, if not every second year, but we’re already looking at doing it next year as well.

“A lot of people need it here. A few people have been affected by cancer and it has touched people, so its nice to have people come together to talk.”
