A baking competition held at Diss Morrisons to coincide with the return of BBC programme The Great British Bake Off has raised hundreds of pounds for good causes.

Held over a month with a different baking challenge each week, participants were challenged to make cupcakes, two-layer cakes, biscuit-based and fruit-based treats.

Ten people were whittled down to four finalists. In a keenly-fought contest, Grant Carter emerged as overall winner and he won an afternoon tea for two donated by Brome Grange.

To finish the event, a cake sale was held for Morrisons customers, with more than 250 cupcakes made by staff selling out in just three hours, raising £350.

Organiser and judge, Ruth Harris-Orford said “It was really tough having to try so many cakes each but someone had to do it and the standard and variety of cakes was exceptional.

“Thank you to all the staff and customers of Morrisons for their generosity.”

The money will go to their store charity, Sue Ryder.
