Gary Johns held the event at their Silver Street base with a range of tempting baked goodies to raise funds for the cause.

Gary said: “My mum died of cancer and so did a colleague’s so this charity is close to our heart.

“We were really pleased with how it went so I’m sure we will stage it again next year.”

Staff pulled out the stops to lay on a range of sweet treats in addition to a raffle which included a home made tea cosy.
