Nellie’s Community Café, on Scott Court, opens on the second Wednesday and last Friday of each month and donates its profits to local charities every six months.

It provides a place for people to relax, have a chat and enjoy some tea, coffee, homemade cakes and light lunches - including bacon butties - and all profits are donated to charity.

This year the café decided to split £1,240 between talking newspaper for the blind, Fenprobe, which received £550, and the Sutton Community First Responders, which was given £690.
