A cake sale at the Council’s Weeley Offices brought in almost £100 and there was a similar event at the Clacton Northbourne Road depot which collected around £55..

This was all on top of the £420 raised at Chairman Mark Platt’s coffee morning in the parlour at Clacton Town Hall.

Walton on the Naze Lifestyles brought in £205.50; Clacton Leisure Centre £202.98; Harwich Sports Centre £81.52; Brightlingsea Sports Centre £50.64; Dovercourt Bay Lifestyles £44.69 and Manningtree Sports Centre £25.
