A Clevedon church has raised hundreds of pounds for an international children’s charity by baking cakes.

Christchurch in Chapel Hill held a big bake event for Tearfund’s No Child Taken appeal which is raising money to help prevent young children being taken away from their families by traffickers around the world.

About 60 cakes were entered in a variety of categories for adults and children, resulting in £650 being raised for the charity.

Terry Game, event organiser, said: “This was the first time we had organised such an event and were really pleased with the number of entries.

“We served refreshments throughout the event and there were also a few stalls and children’s activities so there was plenty to do.”

Staff from Corrister and White cake shop in Hill Road were also on hand to give entrants and visitors a demonstration of the best way to ice and decorate a cake.
