A cheque for £12,500 has been sent to Help for Heroes by charity baker David Brown.

The funds were raised from last July to date by Mr Brown's popular cake and chutney stalls, with the final boost coming from his Armed Forces Day event at his home in Burgh St Peter.

The funds also include a cheque for £1,900, raised by friends in Canada.

Mr Brown, who has been selling his homemade cakes and chutneys with his late wife Pat for the past eight years, celebrated raising over £50,000 for Help for Heroes last year.

They were inspired to start fundraising through their daughter Sally Williams, who has served in the army for more than 20 years. After being so moved by the soldiers they met, they decided to support the charity.
