It may not be Red Nose Day until Friday, but one West Norfolk community couldn’t wait to get into the charitable spirit.
Villagers in Gayton spent their Saturday morning getting creative by taking part in a fundraising Bake Off event at the Jubilee Hall for Comic Relief.
Children and adults were challenged to make their best possible sweet treats, which were then judged on taste and appearance.
The winners of the competition were Amy Smith in the adult category and Summer Mallett for children.
The entries were judged both by visitors to the event and Heather Gray, who runs the Cake Tin Kitchen in Lynn.
She said: “We had a fabulous day in which we saw, and had the pleasure of tasting, many fantastic cakes the local community had baked.
“It was great to see local people coming together and using the Jubilee Hall to raise money for such a worthy charity.”
Hall trustee Sally Attwell thanked all those who took part in the event, which included a raffle and raised £202.83 for the charity.
She said: “We were really pleased with the turn out and we had so many cakes to choose from. Everyone enjoyed the tea and cake.”
The hall will next host an Easter bingo evening on Friday, April 7, from 7pm.
