BUDDING bakers from a Market Rasen nursery have spent two days baking cakes to help to raise money for a charity shop in the town.

Children – and even babies – from Town and Country Kiddes in Kilnwell Road held a two-day cake bake in aid of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance shop.

The Queen Street charity shop was forced to close in the busy run-up to Christmas due to a flood caused by criminals trying to steal copper pipes from the flat above.

The shop had to be gutted and missed out on thousands of pounds of takings.

Town and Country Kiddies manager Margaret Reeves said: “The bake went very well – all the children took part and absolutely loved it. Even tiny babies put their hands in and helped out.

“Some parents have also baked cakes – it’s been a total family project.”

Town and Country Kiddies will be selling the cakes at the Market Rasen Lincolnshire Co-operative store in John Street from about 8.30am until everything has been sold.

There will be all kinds of different cakes, including cheesecake, sponge cake, fairy cakes, chocolate cake, crispy cakes, brownies and flapjacks.

Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance is a vital life-saving charity which relies heavily on donations and sales at its charity shops.
