Eat cake and support cafe charity push.
FAMILY-RUN eatery Dil and the Bear in Tynemouth is inviting people to eat cake and raise funds for Macmillan.
The artisan cafe in Front Street is taking part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning on September 25, a now annual event organised by Macmillan Cancer Support.
Local residents and visitors are invited to come along for unlimited tea, coffee and cake between 10.30am-12pm.
Tickets, which must be bought in advance, cost PS8, of which PS5 will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Owner Dilaila Galbraith says: "We are very proud to be supporting the World's Biggest Coffee Morning. With one in three people in the UK suffering from cancer, we will all know someone who has suffered from the disease.
"This is a fun and easy way to raise much-needed funds for a fantastic charity. What could be simpler or more pleasurable than being asked to eat cake and drink tea or coffee while having a natter and catch up with your friends and family?" Since Dil and the Bear opened in May 2013, it has become renowned for its choice of delectable homebaked treats. Bestsellers include its chocolate and peanut butter vegan cake; cake truffles; red velvet cake; four-tier birthday cake covered in jewel-coloured sweets; meringues; layered coffee sponge; and mini carrot cakes.
The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest fundraising event, with people across the country encouraged to put on the kettle and lay out the tasty treats. Last year the initiative raised PS25m for the charity.
Tickets for Dil and the Bear event are on sale until September 22 and can be bought direct from the cafe or reserved by calling 07709 178 721.
