An indulgence day in Ely raised £268 for children with cancer.
Radley bags, perfumes, costume jewellery and scarves were among the cut price goodies for sale within the Cancer Research charity shop in the High Street.
Organised by deputy manager Elizabeth Robinson the day encouraged people to volunteer high end luxury items to help bring in funds for young people with cancer.
Manager Dawn Statham said the event, the first time they had held it, had been a big success.
“We set aside a separate table of goodies which was very popular,” she said.
