COLOURFUL cake creations have helped raise more than £1,000 cash for charitable causes.
A group of council staff in Weston’s Town Hall began baking last year to help the Gromit Unleashed appeal.
Amy Balcomb, who works in the finance team in Walliscote Road, discovered she had a hidden talent at cake making and started a baking group.
The group then created another batch for the Great Bake Off appeal for Great Ormond Street.
At Christmas, they decided to fundraise for two homeless shelters Comfort and Warmth and The Samaritans and collected more than £300.
A sale for the RNLI raised more than £400, while another in aid of Weston Hospicecare saw 20 staff from all teams take part in memory of a former colleague who died of cancer, raising a further £500.
