A similar event happened in the autumn for the hospice which raised nearly £2,000.

Organiser Jo Marchant said: "As we all know how much our local charities need our help and support. Our little group call ourselves, Authors, Books and Cake and we are three women who love books, meeting authors and baking.

"We have been holding events for nearly five years and making money for local charities.

"Our events are all about the author and the cake and the charity, we do not look for any form of attention for ourselves, we are just three women who love to facilitate these events and bask in the wonderful feeling that these events leave us with.

"We prepare and serve a full afternoon tea, comprising of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and a full and varied range of cake.

"Free flowing tea and coffee and everyone leaves our events full.

"All events are held in the glorious Swaffham Assembly and we are in cahoots too with the great Ceres bookshop a small but mighty independent book shop based in Swaffham.

"Run by Claire she sells our tickets for us and supplies the books for our authors to sell and sign."
