A former consultant paediatrician who reached the finals of the popular BBC show MasterChef has used his culinary skills to help a Norfolk charity celebrate its 20th year.

Tim Kinnaird, who since quitting his medical career has opened up Macarons & More in Norwich's Royal Arcade, produced 100 handmade cakes for The Butterfly Cake Bake held at the Virgin Money Lounge, Castle Street, Norwich in aid of the Benjamin Foundation which provides a range of services for children, young people and families throughout the county.

Customers sampling Mr Kinnaird's cakes, and 100 others produced by Cafe 7 on Surrey Street, were able to make a donation as well as finding out more about the charity at yesterday's event.

Chris Elliott, marketing and fundraising manager, said it was a fun way of letting people know about the charity as it celebrates its 20th birthday.
