SWEET-toothed staff and councillors at Wyre Forest District Council raised £350 for charity after holding a bake-off.

Workers from various departments at got involved to raise cash for terminally ill Kidderminster tot Charlie Harris-Beard and Children in Need.

Lemon cheesecake, chocolate cake, quiche and a specially designed Pudsey cake were among some of the tasty entries.

Dave Johnson, IT manager at the district council, who helped organise the bake-off, said:“We wanted to raise money for these two important charities and thought a bake-off would be the best way to achieve this.

“The effort put in by staff was great to see and the food was delicious. To have raised £350 is astonishing and shows how generous the staff are here at the council.”
