A cake sale at a Bermondsey GP has raised over £300 for Time and Talents, the Rotherhithe community centre.

Staff at the Mill Street Surgery held their annual ‘Collect and Protect afternoon tea’ on Friday, which aims to both raise money for charity and increase flu vaccinations for the over-65s.

The event was led by surgery receptionist Teri Johnson, with raffle prizes donated from businesses on nearby Tooley Street including Tesco, M&S and Boots in Hayes Galleria.

“This year we are supporting a smaller local charity called Time and Talents, they reach out and support the wider community from all ages, background and needs,” said Ms Johnson.

“We believe it is important to work with the wider community and bring people and businesses together.”

A total of £306 was raised for Time and Talents on the day, which is based in St Marychurch Street.
