Teacake’s Jodie Allard said: “Alongside the usual tea and cakes we had a raffle, games and a Great British Bake Off competition that former finalist Ian Cumming came to judge for us.

“Last year we raised, £804 and as a small, family run business we are delighted to have raised so much money alongside friends and the local community.”
