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.”
