Friends of Stanley Park held a two-day coffee event to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Held in the Visitor Centre at the park, there were stalls, games and delicious homemade cakes.
The event raised £965.
Elaine Smith, chairman of the Friends of Stanley Park, said: “We were amazed at how much we raised as the weather had been atrocious.
“For people to come out and be so generous, we couldn’t believe it.
“We had a raffle, cakes, and stalls with jewellery, bric-a-brac and crafts. The Friends of Stanley Park ran the stalls, they are a really generous group of people.”
Mayor of Blackpool Ian Coleman officially opened the two-day event on Saturday, September 30.
