PEOPLE poured into St Albans fire station to enjoy a brew with firefighters in aid of a cancer charity yesterday (Thursday).
More than �300 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support during the event, which was attended by between 200 and 300 local people.
White Watch organised the day as part of the charity's largest national fundraising event, the World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
Some of the firefighters made cakes and the coffee was supplied by Starbucks, while other goods for the day were donated by Premier Foods, Marks and Spencer and Robert Dyas.
Alongside the coffee and cakes on offer, the visitors were also treated to fire safety advice and fire demonstrations throughout the day.
Crew commander Marc Cavaciuti said: "It was a great day, we raised a lot of money for a great cause and we are grateful for all the help and support we got, including the sponsorship. We are really pleased that we can make a difference."

Two million people are living with cancer in the UK but Macmillan only has enough resources to reach half that number at present, which is why funds are so important.
More than �7.5million was raised across the country in last year's event, and the 1,000 coffee mornings held in Herts accounted for �165,000 of that total.
