A popular charity baker will return to Beccles town centre this weekend to raise money for wounded servicemen and women.
David Brown from Burgh St Peter, will be back in his usual spot at Exchange Square on Saturday, September 14 to raise funds for the Help for Heroes.
Since 2009, Mr Brown has been selling his hand-crafted sweet pastries and savouries for the charity which help service personnel suffering from both physical and mental disabilities.
Now, the baker is just £6,500 short of his £100,000 goal and is encouraging the community to support the cause and buy a pastry.
Mr Brown said: "I will be there at the crack of dawn and will be selling from 7.30am onwards, or until we are sold out.
