KETTLES have been boiling across Crow Country this morning as people mark the world's biggest coffee morning.

The event, arranged by MacMillan Cancer Support, The Crow's charity of the year, has seen people enjoying a hot drink and piece of cake while donating cash to the charity.

Vera Bishop, of Pedlar's Lane, Therfield, is aiming to beat the �600 she raised last year.

Speaking to The Crow earlier today, she said: "So many people are touched by cancer, and the work of the MacMillan nurses is invaluable.

Meanwhile staff at The Meridian School in Royston have also been taking part, and raised over �100.
