Slepe Hall in St Ives helped to raise some £7,000 in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity on March 4.
The day was organised by Sophie Morris, who, after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, has now raised more than £60,000 for the charity over the past two years.
Stuart Clements, manager at Slepe Hall, said: “It was a cracking day, and great to get involved with it again.”
The event featured a coffee morning, mini fete and coin carpet, and coincided with Bandana Day; a national awareness day for brain tumours.
Children from Westfield Junior School and Eastfield Infant and Nursery School wore the headwear for the day, raising some £900 between them, as did postmen serving St Ives and surrounding areas.
