A leisure centre in Wisbech hosted its own bake-off challenge and raised £610 for charity.
The New Vision Fitness Hudson Centre held The Great Hudson Bake Off on Friday, October 6, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Cupcakes, sponges and cream roulades were among the showstoppers entered into the contest, which was judged by Councillor David Hodgson, vice chairman of Fenland District Council, which runs the leisure centre, and his wife Judy.
New Vision Fitness receptionist Cathy Bremner was named star baker for her spiced carrot cake, and a farmyard cake by ‘The Gingerbread Man’ Spencer Neilly was highly commended.
Leisure centre members and visitors also took part in a tea dance and raffle.
