A cake baker has organised her ninth sale in her garden at home and smashed her previous fundraising record, collecting £1,700 for Haven House.

Michelle Van Lint, of South Woodford, held the tea party at her Derby Road home earlier this month.

Friends, family and neighbours all supported the event - where there was a raffle and a shoe sale - in aid of the hospice.

Mrs Van Lint: “Thank you to everyone who came along and helped - what an amazing day we had.

“It was exhausting, but I am already thinking about next year’s event, which will be the 10th anniversary - I am hoping to raise more than ever.”

If you would like to hold a cake sale for Haven House, please email events@havenhouse.org.uk or contact 020 8506 3637.
