A group of local fishermen caught some fish with a difference when they had a coffee morning on board the Budding Rose in Peterhead harbour last week.

Skipper Peter Bruce and his crew enjoyed a selection of fish-shaped biscuits and cupcakes to promote Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning which celebrated its 25th anniversary on Friday, September 25.

Peter said: “There’s not a family in the country that hasn’t been touched by cancer. I have firsthand experience of the work Macmillan Cancer Support do.

“Having a coffee morning aboard the boat is a great way of raising funds to support their great work.”

They were joined by Caroline Buchan, project worker at the Grampian Macmillan Cancer Centre Project in Peterhead, which provides grants for people affected by cancer.

“We help people at a very difficult time when they are not able to work but still need to pay the bills,” she said.

“Without the funds raised by events like the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, we couldn’t do the work we do.”
