CUP cakes and cookies were sold to raise money to help provide support and care for sick babies born at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.
The Little Fishes mums and tots group, which meets at the Baptist Church in Bluntisham, held a cake sale and raised £63 for The Hunts Post New Life Appeal.
The group sold homemade chocolate corn flake cakes, fairy cakes, biscuits and cookies to raise money.
Michelle Gore, treasurer of the Little Fishes committee, said: "Mums, grandmas, dads and granddads of the group decided to support The Hunts Post New Life Appeal as most of us have had our children born at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
"We all had such a good experience at the maternity unit that we wanted to give something back."
Launched in January, the appeal aims to raise £70,000 for the hospital's special care baby unit and maternity unit. The money will pay for improvements to the departments, including en-suite facilities and the latest equipment to care for sick babies.
