CHARITY cream teas are on offer at Green Lanes Café in Barnstaple over the coming weeks up to Christmas.

Every Monday at 4pm café owner Paul Edmondson and his son Ade will be hosting the cream teas at the Green Lanes Shopping Centre cafe to raise money for the Children's Hospice South West.

They launched the fund raising bid on Saturday, joined by local councillors Roy Lucas and David Butt. Staff have organised a variety of events for the hospice and set a target of £2,000 - with £700 already in the kitty.

A big raffle is planned for early December and visitors will also be asked to enter naming competitions for a reindeer, dog and teddy bear.

"I think it's great they are helping such an important local charity and I have been delighted to help them," said David Butt.

"It's a lovely atmosphere and I am often found there drinking coffee or, on Saturday mornings, 'recovering' with an excellent breakfast!
