A CREATIVE baker is raffling two spectacular cakes to boost a cash crusade in aid of charities close to her heart.

Amanda Heaviside, who runs Fairy Hill Cakes, will make and decorate two bespoke cakes as prizes for two charity draws.

One will be a single tier creation worth £100 and the other will be a three tier celebration cake worth £450, designed with the winner in mind for an occasion such as a wedding or christening.

To enter the draws Mrs Heaviside, of Ferryhill, County Durham, is asking people to donate £1 or £5 in aid of Challenge 321.

Her husband, Andrew, and friends James Latcham and Stephen Buston have run and cycled more than a million metres during 2013 to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and The Brain Tumour Charity.

They were inspired to support those organisations as a friend’s son is currently fighting leukaemia and in memory of good friend Phil Stephenson, who like the trio was from Ferryhill, and died last December after battling a cancerous brain tumour for six years.

Mrs Heaviside said: “What the lads are doing is amazing and I just wanted to do my bit to help, I hope it can boost their fundraising and help two very good causes.

“I’ll work alongside the raffle winners to create the cakes they want.”
