Students and staff at a Wisbech school baked cakes and biscuits for a charity event to raise money for a cancer charity.
Guests included parents and carers and representatives from Cambridgeshire County district teams who work alongside the school in supporting learners.
A spokesman for the Octavia Academy said: “There was a fantastic atmosphere, leaners took part in games and competitions, helped decorate the room and served tea and coffee to guests.
“We were really proud of them.
“Staff ‘Bake off’ winner was Amber Doyle our business support professional, who baked a fabulous green Macmillan cake.
