Stansted police and airport staff raise cash for Children in Need

POLICE at Stansted Airport have helped to raise nearly �400 for Children in Need with home-made treats that sold like hot cakes.

Cakes baked by officers and staff at the airport police station went on sale on Friday at a stall set up in the atrium in Enterprise House.

Airport and airline staff based at the office block lapped up the cakes and also bought tickets for a range of tombola prizes donated by police staff and businesses at Stansted.

Det Con Jean Seager, one of the organisers, said: “We are very grateful to everyone who made cakes and to all the business which donated prizes.

“We still have a few prizes left and we hope the final total will be around �450.”
