Family-run furniture retailer Cookes Furniture has revealed that it raised more than £1,000 for the Cancer Support Centre in Sutton Coldfield.

The Midlands-based store held a Wimbledon afternoon tea event on 7 July 2016, and invited the local community to join them in-store at Edward’s Restaurant.

For a donation customers enjoyed unlimited fizz, finger sandwiches, coffee and cake with all proceeds going to the charity.

Over the years, the store has raised more than £5,000 for the charity, hosting gala dinners, afternoon teas and other fundraising events.

Vanessa Hoe, marketing director at Cookes Furniture, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Andy Murray became Wimbledon champion again and of our great result too, raising over £1,000 at our own Wimbledon charity event.

“We’d like to thank everyone that came along, the turnout was fantastic as always and this year given that the afternoon tea was in line with the famous British tennis tournament made it even more exciting.

“We have always supported the Cancer Support Centre and will continue to do so as we really admire all the wonderful work they do for people affected by cancer.”
