MUMS working at the borough's Grafton House headquarters in Ipswich have taken part in a coffee morning and earned the status 'Yummy Mummies'.

The event was organised to formally launch National Yummy Mummy Week in Suffolk, which starts tomorrow as a fundraising initiative for CLIC Sargent, the UK's leading children's cancer charity.

Tracy Booth, 36, from Sproughton organised the coffee morning - and a has a very personal involvement with the charity.

She said: “My 14-year-old daughter Ellen, of Claydon High School, was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour in May and is currently undergoing treatment at Addenbrokes.

“Since she was diagnosed, our family has recently a great deal of support from CLIC Sargent.” She felt taking part in National Yummy Mummy week was the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the charity.

A Dishy Daddy Golf Day on Monday 8th October at Purdis Heath Golf Course is being hosted by Mrs Booth and her colleagues and hopes to raise about £2,000 for the charity.
