The centre runs courses including cooking, textiles, and crafts for people with different abilities.

Vicky Lovstad, administrator at the centre, said: “We’re hoping to raise quite a bit of money – anything over £100 would be great.”

Visitors were asked to pay £1.50 to tuck into the homemade buffet.

The Eve Appeal aims to raise money for research into better detection and improved treatment of all five gynaecological cancers.

Vicky, 21, from Pallion, said: “We’ve lost some users and some staff to cancer, so it’s really important to us.”
