A café in Milton ran a competition to raise money for the Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT).

The Milton Larder, in Milton Road, ran a novel contest to ask people to guess the number of coffee beans in a jar.

The event was held in memory of Mary Collard, who died from bone cancer in 2012 when she was just 11 years old.

Her parents, Sue and Andy Collard from Worle have recently reached the £250,000 mark with their fundraising efforts.

Sue is a member of the Milton Larder Running Club, which uses the café as a base.

The winner was Janet Stark, who correctly guessed there were 5,050 coffee beans in the jar and was given a hamper.

The event raised £250 for the BCRT, and coincided with the cafe’s second anniversary.

Sue said: “A big thank you to everyone involved.”

The next event raising money for Mary’s Team Bones will be a quiz night on June 18 at Weston Rugby Club in Drove Road.

It will start at 7pm, and it is for teams of four to five people.

It will cost £5 per person to enter, and proceeds will go to the BCRT.
