A LETHAM woman turned her home into a coffee shop for one morning to raise money for Macmillan nurses.

Paula Nicoll had roughly 50 visitors turn up to her home to enjoy both cakes, biscuits and coffee on a Saturday last month.

She ran the coffee morning from 10 a.m. until 12 noon and had the help from her three children; Hannah (11), Lucy (10) and Daniel (7).

Paula said: “The children had a great time helping at the coffee morning.”

They had a gazebo set up in the back garden and everyone ended up outside enjoying the unusually sunny and warm weather.

Around £450 was raised on the day but they are still receiving donations from people who heard about the event but couldn’t attend.

Macmillan is close to the family’s heart as Paula’s father was diagnosed with cancer two years ago and her mother is also currently under Macmillan care. Paula added: “The charity has been a great help to them both and we thought it was time to give something back.”

Next year the family are planning on fund-raising for cancer wards and are thinking about walking around Forfar Loch or cycling from Arbroath to Carnoustie and back as ideas for sponsored activities.
