The owner of the shop, Caroline Gates, is currently having treatment for breast cancer.

Sam Mardlin works at the shop, and said: “The day went really well and the weather was lovely, it was great to raise money for a cause that is close to us here.

“We raised just over £1,800 for Breast Cancer Now. All of the Room No 9 staff dressed up in pink and got lots of attention from passers by and regular customers!

“We had a fantastic raffle, lots of pink treats for sale, a second hand rail of kids and ladies clothing and a bric a brac sale, we also received lots of donations.”
