A JUNIOR fundraiser helped to open a community café in memory of her great grandmother.

Aimee Temple, eight, from Fence Houses, raised more than £500 after Sarah Carr, 84, died a year ago.

Sarah was a resident of the Beauley Lodge Care Home in Lumley New Road.

Bosses at the care home put the money towards converting a former bedroom in the home to a café.

The home’s activities co-ordinator Ann Brown said: “Aimee did ever so well to raise so much money.

“She’s only eight. Her brother Freddie helped her and he’s only three.

“I think they did raffles and collections from friends, family and local businesses.

“The money had been used to open the café, which is called Sarah’s in memory of Aimee’s great grandma.

“The café is also open to all in the community, not just residents and visitors to the home.”
