A FUNDRAISING total of £700 was the icing on the cake for a Buxton woman who organised a charity cake sale in aid of Help for Heroes.

Claire Howarth organised a Colossal Cake Sale at Buxton Methodist Church last month, raising £700 for the charity.

Friends and local businesses got involved by baking and donating everything from cupcakes and biscuits to breads and jams.

Claire said: “I would really like to thank everyone for their support. Without everyone’s help we wouldn’t have been able to raise this much.”

The Buxton sale was one of 650 taking place across the country during the Help for Heroes Colossal Cake Sale fortnight, which finishes on Saturday.
