The £410.55 cheque the Rose and Crown pub presented to the Bury Free Press Defeat Dementia campaign on Sunday was a family affair.

The donation included £214.55 from a cake sale Bethany, 14, and Isabell Johnston, 11, organised outside their grandparents Tony and Liz Fayers’ pub in Westgate Street, Bury St Edmunds. It was topped up by one of the pub’s monthly charity quizzes.

The girls have organised an annual cake stall on Easter Saturday for the past five years, choosing a charity themselves.

Liz said: “They make a lot of the cakes themselves but they also go around the relatives. They have to fix it all themselves.”

The Rose and Crown’s quiz nights are always for local charities.

The BFP began the campaign to raise funds for dementia research at Christmas with a feature on sports editor Russell Claydon’s grandad Brian Yallop. Donate at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/SomeoneSpecial/bfpdefeatdementia
