Clavering cake sale raises hundreds to support learning disability charity
A fundraising event held at the smallest house in Britain raised £620 to support people with learning disabilities in Saffron Walden.
Campaigners for the charity Mencap held an open garden cake and plant sale in Clavering on Saturday, May 30.
Laura Chantrell, a fundraiser for the group, said: “It was an extremely busy day. We had 12 helpers and we were all rushed off our feet.”
The event was a huge success, attracting around one hundred people and raising cash to help provide social activities and support for those with learning disabilities in Saffron Walden.
Visitors enjoyed tea and cream cakes on the lawn in glorious sunshine and said they thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.
