COffee mornings held across the county to raise cash for Macmillan Cancer Care collected £120,000.
Fundraisers across Erewash put the kettle on for the charity’s 21st event.
Area fundraising manager Steve Loane added: “Every year we raise more and more from the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
“It’s an event that really seems to capture the interest of all kinds of groups, from large UK-wide businesses, to individuals and small community organisations. I’m sure next year’s event will be even bigger and better.”
