Selfless volunteers from the Melbourne Wesley Chapel Trustees have raised more than £1,000 for charity.

The volunteers, who hold a sale of donated items at the chapel every month, have presented £550 from their yearly takings to David Hebden, a community fundraiser for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

They have also donated £580 to the Malengwa Appeal, which will be used to provide books to children in 
Zambia.

Janet Hayton, from Melbourne Wesley Chapel Trustees, said: “I am pleased with how much we have raised, it’s just fantastic. We have people that come every month to the cafe to support us and it is just wonderful.”
