SAILORS and staff at HMS Collingwood competed in a bake off for the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust.

The event was opened by Captain Steve Dainton, the commanding officer of the Fareham naval base.

The captain and his judging panel sampled the 25 entries and awarded prizes for the best looking, best tasting, and best shop-bought cake.

Lyn Gannon, from the benevolent trust, said: ‘I’m thrilled at the support shown here.

‘I just wish I was as good at making the cakes as I am at eating them.’

In total, £425 was raised on the day for the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust.

The event was organised by Leading Seaman (Communication Information Specialist) Tracy Wilson.
