Residents paying for care hold charity bake-off

Posted on 07 June 2011

Residents paying for care at a sheltered housing complex in Peterborough held a bake-off to raise funds for a life-saving charity.

More than £230 was raised for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, with the winning cake depicting a helicopter on a cliff top, reports the Evening Telegraph.

The cake, created by Ruth Pender and Giles Pender, utilised green and blue icing for the grass and sea, with a helicopter perched atop the cliff and a rope hung down the cake to retrieve an injured footballer.

As well as the bake off, the event included a raffle, lucky dip and cake stall.

Social secretary for the Clifton Court Social Club Ann Stocks told the newspaper: "It went very well, we all thought it was a good cause.

"You never know when you might need an air ambulance."

This follows a report in the Weatherby News that a Scarthingwell care home held Proms and Picnic in the Park to raise money for charity.
