Fun-filled fundraiser for Air Force-themed Biggin Hill cafe
An Air Force-themed Biggin Hill cafe gave something back last weekend with a fun-filled fundraiser.
The Spitfire Cafe, whose all-day breakfasts include the Harrier, the Tornado and the Red Arrow, played host to around 60 guests on Sunday afternoon, as it raised money for charity Armed Forces Bikers.
The Main Road eatery is run by 46-year-old Sally O'Connor - whose father, John Harnett, was in the RAF - and her husband Barry, 56.

Around £230 was raised, as members of the public and the bikers themselves sampled the many culinary delights on offer.
The cafe even received a visit from 90-year-old veteran William John Jarred, of the Royal Navy, who served on the HMS Vesper in the Second World War.
Mrs O'Connor said: "It was fabulous, I couldn't have wished for a better day. Everyone enjoyed themselves, it was a lovely atmosphere.
"Everybody was there to support the armed forces and recognise what they did and what they are doing now."

Armed Forced Bikers aims to assist former members of the armed forces who have suffered as a result of injury or other harmful experience and rehabilitate them into civilian life.
