Image on Food took part in Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning fundraiser in September.

Decorator Anna Mosór organised the fundraising, which involved selling baked goods and savoury Polish dishes.

A total of £412.10 was raised over three days by the 70 staff.

Anna Mosór said: "I was delighted that the directors of Image on Food were happy to support my idea and it was wonderful to mobilise the whole company to get involved. I am delighted by how much we raised and this will make a real difference to those receiving specialist care.’’

Sales and marketing director of Image on Food, Sarah Hopcroft, said: "Hosting a fundraising coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer has been so important for many of us at Image on Food, many of whom have been affected by a loved one or friend who is living with, or has lived with cancer.

"Being part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning offers our staff a chance to contribute to a campaign which is of vital importance nationally but also locally. I am very proud of the staff who came together to show their support for this important fundraising campaign and also impressed by their variety of creative bakes which were amazing."
