For the past 23-years thousands of people across the UK have been staging fundraisers in support of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
During the events people are asked to make a donation to Macmillan to help fund Macmillan nurses, therapists and support line workers who help those affected by cancer.
Puxton Park got behind the initiative last year for the first time attracting many families and therefore supported the event for the second year running on September 27.
Families made a donation for teas, coffees and cakes on the day and for the Punch and Judy and face painting activities helping to raise £122.95 for the charity.
Head of Park Susie Johnson, said: "The World's Biggest Coffee Morning organised by MacMillan Cancer Care has become a popular annual event.
"Here at Puxton Park we hosted a coffee morning to raise vital funds for this wonderful charity who provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support for people living with cancer in our local community."
Last year an amazing 115,000 people signed up to the World's Biggest Ever Coffee Morning raising a record £15 million.
A spokesman for MacMillan said: "There are currently two million people living with cancer in the UK. By 2030 there will be 4 million.
"One in three of us will get cancer and for most it will be the toughest thing we ever face. When you're facing the toughest fight of your life, you need a team of inspiring people in your corner with you.
"That's who we are. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support and we push for a better cancer care system. We're the team that gives you the strength and energy to face the fight and get through it."
Puxton Park is one of the south west's leading attractions and is always working with the local community and supporting charity events.
