Members of the Huntingdon and Peterborough Federation of Women’s Institutes used their baking skills to raise money for the Woodlands Cancer Centre.

Their cake stall at the ­treatment centre at Hinchingbrooke Hospital last month raised £545.

On Thursday, a cheque was presented to Woodlands staff in aid of the extension appeal.

Federation chairman Josette Kermath said: “The stall was the idea of Phyllis Brooks, our vice-chairman, and Woodlands is something close to the heart of every member of the WI. We sold out by 1pm. We could have sold twice as many cakes.”
