A Halloween-themed bake off competition held in St Ives on Saturday helped raise almost £200 for good causes.

The event was held at the headquarters of St Ives Girl Guides, in Station Road, and saw plenty of baked goodies entered for a chance at winning one of a number of prizes on offer.

There were also plenty of activities on offer for visitors to enjoy, including decorating biscuits, making cupcakes, decorating a cat mask and a booky dip.

Some of the prizes donated for the competition came from local businesses, including The Swan and Angel pub, Boots, and the Grape Tree.

Organisers of the event said £184 was raised, which will be split between the Girl Guides Association and Cats Protection.

Niamh Campbell, from Cats Protection St Neots and district branch, said she will put the funds towards a Himalayan tiger trek taking place next year, which will highlight the plight of the dwindling tiger population worldwide.
