Doncaster coffee and cakes will help raise funds for Ukraine.

She said: “So far the response has been amazing and you cannot move in my house for raffle prizes and cakes!

"We are doing coffee, tea and homemade cake for £3 and a tremendous raffle.

"We are hoping to raise lots of money to send to the Ukraine appeal. Everyone has been so generous and wanting to help and donate.”

“One lady on the bus even emptied her purse and sent it as a donation.”
