PUB landlords Mike and Ann Hunt, pictured, from the Prince Albert in Silver Street recently received a 'thank you' certificate from East Anglia Children's Hospice at Milton after raising hundreds of pounds for the charity.
Mike said: "We raised £1764 in seven months for the charity, it is the second time we have organised a collection for EACH."
The couple sell books, puzzles, DVD's and computer games brought in by their customers in the pub.
Ann also makes and sells preservatives to raise money.
"We hold regular raffles and ask for people to donate the prizes. These are all well backed by our regulars and a great way to raise money," added Mike.
The couple believe that over the years they have raised more than £35,000 for a variety of different charities, including Larkfields and Highfields schools and Cares.
