Coffee time in aid of Macmillan
Tea and coffee lovers across Bath will be putting the kettle on tomorrow to support a cancer charity.
The World's Biggest Coffee Morning sees people putting on events to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
This year 285 events are taking place across Bath and north east Somerset, beating last year's total of 168.
All the money raised will go towards helping improve the lives of people with cancer, and support their friends and family.

Last year more than £21,000 was raised locally, and this year the charity hopes to beat that amount by reaching £30,000.
One event is at the Cancer Information Centre at the Royal United Hospital.
The centre, which opened in July 2005, is a partnership between Macmillan and the RUH, and offers information, support and advice to people with cancer.
The coffee morning is being laid on by the Bath Cancer Unit Support Group.
Centre manager Tracy Langton said: "I would love to see members of the public drop by to discover the different ways we can help people affected by cancer.
"The centre is a drop-in service for anyone to sit and talk with a Macmillan professional or volunteer.
"We keep a lot of information here in the centre about treatments, living with cancer and more, and can also signpost you to other agencies or services that may be of benefit to people affected by cancer."
Money raised from coffee mornings in Bath will help Macmillan pay for the refurbishment of the oncology waiting room, information centre and urology quiet room at the RUH.
This will allow people receiving treatment for cancer to access a more comfortable environment, offering privacy, support and information.
Macmillan fundraiser Spencer Clarke said: "Every pound raised by those taking part in events like the World's Biggest Coffee Morning helps us be there for someone with cancer when they need us most."
