Isle of Wight gears up for Big Coffee Morning

Venues across the Isle of Wight are gearing up to take part in Macmillan's attempt to get the entire island to participate in one gigantic coffee morning.

The cafe at the David Wilson Homes in East Cowes will kick things off with a full programme of events that is likely to keep tourists and locals alike occupied for the entire day, let alone the morning.

Visitors are invited to attend from 10am, with a fantastic selection of teas, coffees and cakes on offer. If it so takes their fancy, they are free to stay for an itinerary of other events including mini manicures, a jewellery swap and raffle that should take them to 5pm.

But that's not the only venue on the island intent on taking part in the Big Coffee Morning - Barratt Homes located in the Captain's Parade in Whippingham will also be ushering people in through the door with a tantalisingly tasty selection of treats and drinks.

Finally, not to be left in the dust by its competitors, the Isle of Wight Community Club on Park Road in Cowes will be welcoming coffee enthusiasts from 10am with a warming atmosphere and hot beverages.

The list of attractions at each venue varies, but with tambolas, competitions and silent auctions among the activities, tourists on the Isle of Wight this weekend will not want to miss out.

While the majority of participants will be offering coffee and cake free of charge, donations are encouraged as the aim of the Big Coffee Morning is to raise money for Macmillian, which does sterling work for those in need of cancer support.

Heading to a cafe and enjoying a relaxing morning is a very British - and above all easy - way to help out an extremely worthy cause.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801643215-ADNFCR
