EMPLOYEES at air traffic control company Nats swapped radars for cupcakes to raise money for charity.

The event took place at Nats’ head office in Whiteley on Thursday and raised £600 for breast cancer charity The Haven.

The Haven is a UK charity that offers support to people affected by breast cancer.

It is raising money to open a new support centre in Titchfield.

Talented amateur bakers from Nats submitted their creations in a Great British Bake Off style competition, with the cakes then available for employees to buy.

Claire Burton, talent acquisition manager from Hedge End, was crowned master baker for her lemon drizzle cake with a spectacular chocolate decoration.

Soraya Robertson, learning and development manager and bake off organiser, said: ‘The Haven needs £2.5m to open a new centre in Hampshire this autumn.

‘It does such important work supporting people affected by breast cancer that our employees have been keen to support it, and the cakes were great too.’
