Meanwhile staff at Nellie Taylor Holistics held an event over lunchtime at their High Street beauty salon in Heckington.

Among the fundraising activities were raffles to win a luxury facial and a pamper hamper.

Their Cake-Away sold cakes in the salon.

Boss Christine Massey said: “Our coffee morning went really well. It was a lovely day weather wise which meant our supporters were able to sit in our small courtyard to have a cuppa, cake and a chat. We all had a thoroughly lovely morning.
