A seaside themed charity event has raised around £200 for Macmillan Cancer Care.

Yvonne O’Neill, owner of The Hub Tearooms at the Lighthouse Centre in Lynn Road, hosted the event on Saturday in memory of her mum, Gwyn Kelly, who died of cancer last year.

The popular cafe was transformed into an indoor seaside scene for the event, which featured children’s beach games, deck chairs and lots of seaside themed food, as well as a cake raffle.

There was also a puppet show in the afternoon.

Yvonne said: “We had a super day and lots of people came along to support the event.

“I’ve been raising money for Macmillan ever since mum died and don’t think I’ll ever stop to be honest.”

The cake raffle was won by Cindy Upton, from Wilburton, who donated the cake to the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH) in Milton.

A guess the weight of the cake competition is being run at The Hub - again to raise money for Macmillan.

People have until December 23 to enter the competition and tying in with the seaside theme, the cake, baked by The Hub team, is Ursula from the Little Mermaid.
