The event at Nellie's Community Cafe in Scott Court raised £880 for the charity on Friday (September 27).

There was also a book stall, tombola and three raffles.

Sally White, one of the volunteers at Nellie's, said: "It was a fantastic day.

"Luckily the bad weather did not deter people from supporting this event."

Nellie's Team would like to thank everyone who attended, donated cakes, books or prizes and those who helped on the day.

One visitor said: "I really enjoy coming to Nellie's, the atmosphere in the cafe is great and it was amazing to see so many people support such a worthy cause."

The community cafe is held on the second Wednesday and last Friday of each month at Scott Court, Pound Lane from 10am to 2pm.

All profits from these sessions go to local and national charities.
