Part of the flagship annual event, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Northampton shoppers people came out in force , raising a mug to help beat people living with cancer by taking part in Coffee Morning fundraisers for Macmillan.

As well as enjoying coffee and cake, shoppers took part in fun-filled activities for the good cause, including a cake bake sale and silent auction.

M&S colleagues from both the Northampton and Wellingborough stores completed a static cycle, with a group also taking part in a Sponsored Silence, all in the name of raising funds.

The enthusiastic teams were also dressed in green t-shirts, eye-catching green wigs and green tutus.
