Staff and visitors to the building enjoyed homemade cakes and purchased raffle tickets in support of the fundraiser. Prizes were donated by West Ham United, Theatre Royal Stratford East and council staff. There was also a sale of books and craft items.

Deputy Mayor Councillor Lester Hudson joined the coffee morning and helped served cakes and coffee to staff.

He said: “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in this country and it is important that we do our bit to help raise awareness of it. The money raised will help Breast Cancer Care to provide support and information about prevention and cure to many people.
