KIND-HEARTED owners of a cafe in a renovated chapel have raised vital funds for local good causes.

The Pontcysyllte Chapel Tearoom, in Trevor, has raised £700 for Hope House children's hospice through a charity quiz night, and £160 for the Royal British Legion.

And the tearoom, owned and run by Sally Roberts and her partner, Chris Huxley, have also raised a whopping £1,800 for Aria vs DIPG - a campaign to raise funds for treatment for a three-year-old Wrexham girl with an inoperable brain tumour.

The Leader:

Sally said: "We raised the money for Aria through a number of charity raffles, a charity band night with local band Facevalue and our quiz nights.

"We also had a pair of signed Harry Wilson (Welsh international footballer) boots donated which gained a lot of interest and raffle sales."

Last week, representatives of Hope House hospice visited the tearoom to receive a cheque for £700.

Sally said: :"We have always supported charities where we can since we opened in 2018. When we heard about Aria’s story we had wanted to do something to help.

"I met with Neil Lewis (quizmaster) and Lianne Hughes (tearoom staff member) to arrange a charity quiz and raffle, this was such a success and we have continued the quiz every fortnight since June, raising funds for various charities.

"A huge thank you to Neil the quizmaster, all our staff and our customers who support us at all our events and on a daily basis in the tearoom."
