We knew you were coming so we baked some cakes (for charity)
CAKES turned into cash for a cancer charity at a coffee morning at a Humberston bar restaurant.
Staff at The Trawlerman on North Sea Lane baked cakes at home and sold them at the coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The venue hosted the charity coffee morning after member of staff Nicola Lilley lost her mother Diane Bland to cancer last year.
Bar supervisor Stuart Isherwood boosted the fundraising event by having his locks shaved off in support of the charity.

Local cake makers Katie's Cupcakes, Delilicious and Greggs bakers also donated treats.
Among the first to order coffee and cakes was Cleethorpes grandmother, June Grindle, whose 11-year-old grandson Bradley Marshall has undergone pioneering treatment in the United States.
As reported, the former Grimsby boy, who now lives in Bridlington suffers from cancer of the spine.
Bradley has already had two operations to remove a tumour at the base of his spine, but it has returned.
In the UK, radiation is now the only treatment available which could destroy healthy tissue as well as cancer cells, possibly leaving football fan Bradley crippled for the rest of his life.
The family heard about proton therapy – a more targeted treatment with an 86 per cent success rate – but were originally told by the NHS there was just a ten per cent chance of them funding the treatment.
As a result, the Kids 'n' Cancer charity launched a campaign to raise the £130,000 Bradley's family needed to fund the trip.
Grandmother June, 73, said: "We have come along to show our support for the charity. We also enjoy our cakes.
"Bradley is feeling all right in himself and doing well. He will be going back for his final scan later this month."
Norma Jaines and Mary Mimmack of Cleethorpes had an enjoyable coffee morning with cakes.
Norma said: "We often come here for meals. They are very good and we are pleased to support the charity. It is a nice treat as well, as the cakes have been baked by the staff."
Bar supervisor Stuart was anxious as hairdresser Hannah Bradshaw shaved his hair off.
Stuart, 23, said: "We were thinking of ways to raise money so I thought about a head shave.
"I have done it as a bet before but never for charity. I am starting to feel the cold already. It might have been better in the summer."
Cakes will continue to be sold at The Trawlerman for the appeal.
