A PAIR of Christmas cakes have raised £126 for Fields’ charity of the year -Sidmouth Lifeboat.

The festive-themed treats were baked and decorated by Jen Callaghan, a chef in the store’s coffee shop.

Customers were invited to take part in a guess the weight of the cake competition - with a Mrs Smith from Otterton named the winner.

Staff also had the opportunity to guess the weight of a second cake, raising £26 in the process.

“Staff and customers have been fantastic this year, supporting our nominated charity, Sidmouth Lifeboat, and we’re delighted that we have continued to raise money during a very expensive time of year,” said Fields’ Claire Jenkins.
