A keen baker from Nailsea has raised more than £2,000 for charity by holding a Macmillan coffee morning.

Sara Card, who lives in Earlesfield, opened up her home to hungry supporters on Friday, who packed in to sample her impressive spread of cakes and bakes.

More than 70 of Sara's friends, past and present colleagues, neighbours and even some strangers, flocked to her house to tuck into her desserts which included a tiffin, chocolate brownies, coffee and walnut, apple and blackberry, and malteser cakes, gin and tonic cup cakes and a vegan lime and passionfruit cake.

She said: "I am overwhelmed at the generosity.

"It's such an amazing charity and one which is very close to my heart.

"It was so worth all the hard work."

Sara also held a raffle and would like to thank Burchills, Wetherspoons, Coates House, MiMi's Hair, @thegym, Goldstone Plumbing and Heating, Gemini Gym and SP Hair Company for their donations.

It was Sara's fifth coffee morning and she has raised more than £4,000 for Macmillan, thanks to her cakes.

The World's Biggest Coffee Morning raises money nationally for Macmillan each year, which supports people living with cancer.
