A group of young people from Melbourn have raised almost £200 for charity by holding a stall.

Members of Melbourn Youth Club sold homemade cakes, friendship bracelets and jewellery at the Melbourn Summer Fete for a good cause.

They also ran games including guess how many sweets are in the jar and guess the name of the teddy.

The money will be donated to Tom’s Trust, a local charity which supports children suffering brain tumours and their families after diagnosis through a rehabilitation service called Brainbow.

Melbourn Youth Club is a free weekly club for 12 to 18-year-olds run by charity Groundwork Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
