COFFEE morning fundraisers in Wymondham have the chance to enjoy a cuppa AND throw water over an estate agent tomorrow.
The bizarre event is part of MacMillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee morning event, with hundreds of cups helping to raise vital cash.
At least three members of staff at Abbotts Countrywide in Wymondham Market Place will be placed in the stocks to receive a morning beverage of soaking sponges. A donation to the cause will enable visitors to vent their spleen on office manager Lorraine Holden, negotiator Alistair Mason and area manager Peter Hurrell. The event runs from 9.30am to 1.30pm and
there will be teas, coffees and refreshments available.

Rock star Rick Wakeman will open the event at Yaxley Village Hall (10am-noon) and there are other events at Ivy Farmhouse, The Street, Redgrave, (8.30am-noon), Sandcrofts Village Hall, Fressingfield; St Botolphs Bowls Club, Botesdale (10am-12.30pm) and Flint Barn, Fersfield, (10am-noon).

Last year two million people in the UK helped raise £7.6m for the charity, with Norfolk chipping in £153,000 from 1,011 coffee morning events.
The aim is to encourage as many people as possible to take part by simply having a coffee with family, friends or colleagues. As well as the public events, fundraising will also go on in people's homes.
