The talented painters marked their fifth annual Macmillan Coffee Morning and Art Exhibition on Saturday at Hutton Village Hall.

VIP guests - the Mayor and Mayoress of South Ribble, Coun. Harry and Marion Hancock - joined the celebrations, which saw the group raise a fantastic £1,100 for Macmillan Cancer Support, smashing last year's £1,000 total.

Guests tested their luck in a raffle and tombola, enjoyed a delicious range of cakes and shopped for stunning original paintings by local artists.
