STAFF and residents at a care home in Worcester got busy baking for charity.

There were plenty of sweet treats to tuck into at Cranham Care Home in Warndon where people took part in a cake bake day to raise funds for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

The mouthwatering baked goodies were then given away as prizes in a cake tombola with all the money raised from the event donated to the charity, which provides a lifeline service for people affected by lung cancer.

Their efforts helped raised £40 for the charity and deputy manager Donna White said: “There were some absolutely stunning cakes - with everything from beautiful, dainty fairy cakes to a gigantic creation with a giant iced egg on top. We all had a fantastic day and were thrilled to raise money for such a worthwhile charity.”
