Kelly Da Silva Fernandes ran the coffee morning with the help of her mum Sue Board at Banyers House in Melbourn Street on Friday last week.

The 34-year-old, who has run her own business Kelly's Kitchen - specialising in wedding and celebration cakes, cupcakes and treats - since March this year, told the Crow: "My mum and I ran our second Macmillan Coffee Morning at Banyers House.

"We were absolutely overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Royston. We had queues the entire length of the lounge at the Banyers from just before 10am all the way through to 11.30am. 
"Retailers in Royston were amazingly generous and have donated a huge list of raffle prizes. We've raised £1,387 for Macmillan and it seemed to really create a buzz."
