Wednesday night is biker night with local motorcyclists popping along for coffee and chat and a chance to enjoy a special ‘bikers’ menu at the Coffee Tree on the A47 at Guyhirn

The cafe also has a mascot in shape of giant toy gorilla called Winston and this week he got a chance to enjoy the revs while promoting the charity.

Jill Goude, who helps run the cafe with daughter Jo Goude, explained they are on their second collecting tin for the air ambulance and are looking to present the money shortly when they will switch their fundraising efforts to helping the earthquake victims in Nepal.

Other theme nights include Monday’s classic car and Thursday’s spiritualist evenings. An average of around 20 to 30 bikers go-along to the Wednesday night motorcycle evenings.
