RESIDENTS in Scarborough’s Genevieve Court had fundraising down to a tea after holding a successful coffee morning.

The group made £306 for Scarborough Stroke Club and Scarborough Epilepsy Action thanks to the event, which was held at its Melrose Street base.

The fundraiser at the venue, which provides independent living for the over-60s, has become a tradition with previous coffee mornings helping a number of good causes including the Samaritans and St Catherine’s Hospice.

Residents, family, friends and members of the public attended the coffee morning, which was presided over by warden Maureen Linley and her 12-year-old grandson James.

Around 40 people live at Genevieve Court, which is part of Scarborough Municipal Charities.
