Fundraisers put the kettle on and sat down for a brew to help a good cause.

Thornton Cleveleys Friends of Trinity Hospice organised a coffee morning, which took place at St Teresa’s Church Hall, in Cleveleys, to raise money for the Bispham-based hospice.

Trinity provides a range of care services, including palliative care, for people across the Fylde coast.

It receives little in the way of Government funding and is almost entirely reliant on donations and fundraising.

Guests at the coffee morning were able to enjoy tea and coffee and cakes.

There was also a raffle and tombola.
