And the charity certainly got a response from the generous people of Hartlepool and East Durham.

Schools, churches, community centres, shops, you name it, kind-hearted fundraisers were there pouring tea and coffee and serving up treats to help rake in the cash for the cause.

Schools across the town were extremely also generous with Owton Manor Primary, Holy Trinity Primary, St Aidan’s CE Primary and Catcote School Business and Enterprise College all organising their very own coffee mornings.

Perfect Homes and Boots stores in the town did their bit to raise cash with coffee mornings while care homes were as kindhearted as ever.

Manor Park Care Home, in the town, and Yohden Care Complex, in Peterlee, both organised a coffee morning for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The hot drinks were also poured at Owton Manor Resource Centre while Roaring Mouse did their bit for the cause a day early by organising a coffee morning on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Macmillan Centre, in Peterlee, was busy as residents supported the cause.

Students and staff at St Bede’s Comprehensive School, also in Peterlee, got involved with the fundraiser while events were also held at Helford Road Pavilion and Horden Youth and Community Centre.
