Volunteers man the cake stall for Help4Heroes in Verwood

The cadets and firefighters get ready for their car wash day

First published in New Forest News

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.
