Every six months the volunteers at Nellie’s Community Cafe choose two charities to support.

Since May the cafe has been supporting 1st Sutton Scout Group and Cruse Bereavement Care.

Members of 1st Sutton Scout Group received a cheque for £1,014 and £676 was presented to Maureen Peacock and Marjorie Brammer for Cruse Bereavement Care.

Jane Green, Sutton scout executive chairwoman, said: “We would like to thank Nellie’s customers for this generous donation. This will make a significant contribution to our new scout hut project.”
