A popular charity baker will be back in Beccles to serve up a new range of cakes.

David Brown, of Burgh St Peter, will be appearing in Exchange Square at 8am on Saturday, January 26.

Mr Brown will be selling his hand-crafted range of lemon drizzles, chocolate cakes, whisky infused treats as well as apple and blueberry pies.

He is hoping to raise £100,000 for Help for Heroes and began selling homemade cakes, savouries and chutneys in 2009.

Back then it was just a small operation - with Mr Brown’s late wife Pat baking in the kitchen as the goods were sold from the back garden.

Mr Brown said: ”We need to get everyone down from Beccles, I am pushing for this £100,000,” he said.

Along with his usual selection of sausage rolls and pasties, the baker will debut his new spiced honey cake and barmbrack.

On the spice honey cake, Mr Brown said: “When I was cooking it I was drooling, the smell of it is unbelievable.”
