They also held a socially distanced coffee morning, outside their homes in Lingmoor Drive, and raised the grand total of £582 for Macmillan Nurses, in recognition of the care they gave to one of the resident's husbands.

Organiser Freda Childs arranged a second one as restrictions eased and there was a tombola and also cake and a wine and water stall.

The second event made £606 bringing the grand total to £1,188 for the charity.
