Two friends put their baking skills together to raise more than £300 for a cancer charity.
Annette Willis and Jackie Augier, set up their stall at the Comber Close Community Centre in Neasden to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support on its World’s Biggest Coffee Morning last month.
Jackie said: “This is the first time we’ve done the coffee morning on our own and did it over two days. We raised a total of £317.10p, it was absolutely brilliant.
“We started in the community hall then the next day Beacon Bingo in Cricklewood gave us permission to it in their entrance. Annette, who was friends with my parents, is an amazing baker and made cakes, while I made savoury dishes, samosas, onion bhaji’s, that kind of thing.
“I’d just like to thank everyone who helped and supported us.”

Annette, 65, added: “I’ve been a supporter of Macmillan’s for 22 years. I’ve lost quite a few members of my family and close friends to cancer so it’s important to do this.”
