Beales’ Cafe Moda has raised £242 to support the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance service.
Customers were able to buy raffle tickets for £1 to win a food hamper as part of a commemorative World War One display, with all proceeds going to charity.
Cafe Moda’s deputy store manager Linda Helme joked: “It is a charity that most of the staff like to support, just in case we have to use it one day, you never know.
“I think I support it because my daughter works at the Queen’s Medical Centre and I see just how valuable it is.”
The World War One-themed cafe has proven popular and in some cases made visitors emotional.
Mrs Helme continued: “The reaction has been really positive, we’ve got a poster in the window and it has even brought some customers to tears.
“Some members of staff have brought in their own belongings, such as a painting, and we’ve got books for customers to look at as well.”
Mrs Helme said that the cafe currently has no plans to do a similar event, but would like to do something else in the future.
She concluded: “We have nothing planned at the moment but given the reaction has been so positive we would love to do something like it again.”
