Nellie’s Community Café regularly raises money for various charities and this month it was Sutton Paintbox Pre-School and Diabetes UK who received a cash boost.

The next charities to receive Nellie’s support are Cruse Bereavement Care and 1st Sutton Scout Group.

Nellie’s Community Café is run by volunteers and opens its doors twice a month, offering a place for people to relax and enjoy a bite to eat in the village.

Nellie’s is held on the second Wednesday and last Friday of each month at Scott Court, Pound Lane, Sutton, from 10am to 2pm.

Every six months profits from these sessions are presented to two chosen charities. The proportion of the profits given to each charity is decided by customers voting for them each time they attend.

The community café first opened its doors in March 2011.
