PEMBROKESHIRE’S star bakers have helped to raise nearly £3,500 for Help for Heroes.

A great response from the public saw Saturday’s Colossal Cake Sale in Narberth in aid of the forces rehabilitation charity proving another great success.

This was the fourth sale organised for H4H by Sally Amoore, of Llanddewi Velfrey, whose son was seriously injured in Helmand Province.

Since then, she and her friend Carol Peett have been the driving forces behind the cake sales and last year, Narberth was the second highest H4H cake sale fundraiser in the whole of the UK.

“The cakes were beautiful and bountiful,” said Sally.

“One lady even came back in the middle of the day with a second batch of cup cakes to top up the tables.”

The mayor of Narberth, Councillor Ruth Platt, officially opened the sale on the Town Moor car park, with Army personnel providing manpower, tents and trestle tables and Army cadets out in force around the town with collection buckets.

Added Sally: “We are so grateful to everybody who helped to make the day a success, from Steve in the RAOB Club for providing the use of his club, to all the jam and cake makers and all the stall attendants.

“We would also like to thank everyone who helped out with donations for the tombola, and we did good work selling the H4H merchandise.

“We won’t have an exact tally until the raffle is drawn on May 23, but to date the sale has raised just under £3,500.

“So once again a huge thanks to everyone who put their shoulder to the wheel to show their support for our injured service personnel.”
