Councillor Sue Sharps said: “The important thing was to bring the community together.

“People wanted to talk as people care about what is happening.

“To have raised so much money in one coffee morning is amazing.

“Thank you to everyone who donated cakes and came along to support us.”

The proceeds, which amounted to £1293.55, will go to the British Red Cross, a "neutral and impartial humanitarian network" that is supporting those fleeing the ongoing war.
