STAFF from Portsmouth City Council staff have brandished their baking trays to raise hundreds of pounds for charity.
They organised a bake-off in aid of the Portsmouth Second World War Memorial Fund and donated their best cakes to be judged and sold.
At the council’s civic offices the entries were judged by the Lord Mayor, Cllr Cheryl Buggy, the head of customer, community, and democratic services, Louise Wilders, and fund founder Jean Louth.
Cllr Buggy said: ‘This was a fantastic way to raise money for the memorial, and Portsmouth City Council staff really pitched in and showed how dedicated they are to this worthwhile cause.’
In total they raised £700 from the sale and a raffle.
