TWO community fundraisers raised nearly £2,000 in Verwood at the weekend.
A “Colossal Cake Sale” raised a whopping £742.39 for Help for Heroes, which supports service personnel.
Hundreds of cakes were baked by well-|wishers and sold by volunteers.
Lynne Wilkins was the lucky winner of the showstopper cake and Pat Morrow won the second prize, a duck cake, while all unsold cakes were donated to Waypoints care home.
Firefighters raised an amazing £1,200 washing 123 cars in five hours at the station.
The money will go to the Firefighters’ Charity and to the Fordingbridge Air Cadets, of whom many are from Verwood.
