Some 50 people turned out for the event, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research, at the Mildmay Community Centre in Woodville Road, Newington Green on Friday, raising more than £420 for the cause.

Volunteer Maggie Shoebridge said: “We started on sandwiches, then went onto some nice scones and some home-made cakes. We played bingo and had an enormous raffle.

“A really nice time was had by all and, what was nice, is one of the ladies stood up for a vote of thanks for bringing so many people together. There was such a nice atmosphere.”
