A GROUP of women raised £1,000 for Royal Navy veterans after they baked and sold tasty treats.

HMS Sultan Wives Club donated the sum to Shore Leave Haslar, which runs a memorial garden for ex-serving personnel within the grounds of Royal Hospital Haslar, in Gosport.

Chris Robson, of Shore Leave Haslar, said the additional support will make a significant difference to how the group develops the services it offers.
