Volunteers are taking part in The Cake Campaign, an indulging concept of selling cakes to save lives, which has trended on social media using the hashtag #Cakes4Syria.

The campaign aims to deliver chocolate fudge cakes to people's doors during Ramadan, a month when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk.

At a cost of £10 per cake, all proceeds go to Islamic Relief's Syria Appeal.

As of last year, the campaign has sold more than 125,000 cakes and raised more than £1.25million for the poverty-stricken country.

The final days for deliveries are Sunday and June 2.
