Just splat that estate agent!
WE have all probably wanted to do this at some time….Wymondham folk had a great chance to splat an estate agent and raise money for cancer victims. Staff at estate agents Abbotts Countrywide opted to sit in the hot seat and get soaking wet as they joined thousands of people across the region in supporting Macmillan Cancer Support's annual World's Biggest Coffee Morning event.

Wymondham folk had a great chance to splat an estate agent and raise money for cancer victims.
Staff at estate agents Abbotts Countrywide opted to sit in the hot seat and get soaking wet as they joined thousands of people across the region in supporting Macmillan Cancer Support's annual World's Biggest Coffee Morning event.
A soggy negotiator Alistair Mason said: “People were very gentle and I was quite surprised. It was a brilliant event. We started off with buckets of warm water but when our area manager went in we made sure the water was cold! We had a tombola, raffle and competition as well, and it looks like we've raised about £1,000.”
With more than 850 events in Norfolk alone, and 500 plus in Suffolk, people were certainly spoilt for choice and the traditional home made cakes went down a treat, as well as other delicacies,
Rock legend Rick Wakeman cut a ribbon to launch the coffee morning at Yaxley village hall, while in neighbouring Redgrave Macmillan supporter Kate Gunn was on target to beat last year's total of £1,725.

Helen Chapman, the charity's fundraising manager at Norwich, said: “Overall, we are really pleased. We had MPs out and about in the area, and lots of people holding public and private events and the more we raise the more we can support local people with
cancer.” The target for this year is £8m nationally.
The World's Biggest Coffee Morning event run by Joan Green of Fersfield raised £1,035 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Tea Party at Palgrave collected £355.
