A SHOP’S char­ity cof­fee morn­ing has raised more than £200 for a hospice.

Owner of Domesco, in High Street, Che­sham, Brian Rid­g­ley or­gan­ised the fundrais­ing event re­cently in a bid to raise cash for the Hospice of St Fran­cis.

As well as teas and cof­fees be­ing avail­able, there were also cook­ing demon­stra­tions and tips, cakes to take home in gift boxes and a raf­fle.

Mr Rid­g­ley, who is also a keen pho­tog­ra­pher, also sold some of his photographs with do­na­tions be­ing made to the hospice.

It is es­ti­mated the morn­ing made more than £100 and Mr Rid­g­ley vowed to match the to­tal raised, mean­ing more than £200 was raised.

Mr Rid­g­ley added: “It went very well and it was good fun. The hospice is also very pleased.”

Mr Rid­g­ley did the event in aid of the Hospice of St Fran­cis as it cared for the company’s for­mer owner Ken Tu­na­ley, who founded the business in 1955 but died two years ago.
