A 12-year-old girl has raised nearly £250 after hosting a coffee event for charity.
Skye Kerins, a year seven pupil at Mildenhall College Academy, held a Macmillan Coffee Morning at Lakenheath Bowls Club.
In the lead up to the event Skye designed and displayed posters around the village in order to raise awareness.
Cakes were either homemade or bought and some were donated by family and friends, along with tombola prizes.
The idea, organisation and running of the event was all done by the youngster.
