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.
