A charity champion who has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds through years of fundraising, has added to her total with a tea and cake day.

Maria Hains, a torch bearer for the Olympic Games, sold home-baked cakes at the Coffee Shop, in Three Bridges, with her daugher Amanda, in aid of Crawley Open House and the Children’s Wish Foundation on Tuesday March 26.

As a member of Crawley Hospital League of Friends Maria has raised thousands for life-saving equipment and on Thursday March 28 also held a fundraising day at Barclay’s, Three Bridges, with the bank pledging to match the total.
