BREAKFAST is the most important meal of the day.

Therefore, visitors at St Nicholas’ Church, in Long Road, on Canvey, started their weekend with a hearty meal as well as a bit of fundraising.

Guests were invited to go along to the church, which offered a cooked breakfast to fundraise for Christian Aid.

The Big Brekkie events went extremely well and the church raised money for the charity.

Rev Marion Walford, from the church, said she was delighted with how the morning went.

She said: “It was a really lovely morning, I think we must have had over 50 people who came along to show their support.

“We had a healthy option of fresh fruit and yoghurt and also a fried breakfast.

“We spent the whole week fundraising for Christian Aid week. We raised over £3,600 throughout the week with different events, including a jumble sale and collections."
