Boswell and Son helped raise money for Breast Awareness, by selling raffle tickets for a draw and name the teddy for a week now.

Claire Hill said: “We can’t thank the local businesses enough for their kind generosity in raffle prizes and a huge great thanks for the Mayor of Ely, in visiting us to help draw the tickets.

“We would like to say thank you to all our customers who helped us raise a staggering amount of £314.89.”

Mayor Councillor Michael Rouse said: “Delighted to visit the lovely ladies in pink at Boswell’s Bakery to take centre stage again with Gilly Lancaster and draw the winning raffle ticket for their Breast Cancer charity.
