Sugarcraft donation the icing on the cake

A host of beautifully decorated cakes have been donated to St Richard’s Hospice to help raise money for its care.

Talented members of the Wychavon branch of the British Sugarcraft Guild, which meets in Droitwich, made 27 iced cakes which will be raffled, sold and auctioned to support the hospice.

Among the creations hand-crafted from cake and icing are intricate festive scenes, Disney characters and even a loveable pup.

Ann Newton, Chairperson of the Guild, said: “St Richard’s is such a fantastic cause, it just does such incredible work.

“We are all pleased that we can help in some small way to help it continue with such excellent work for the community. We have such fun doing it as well – it is great.”

The guild has donated iced cakes to St Richard’s every Christmas for 15 years and in that time has helped raise a fantastic amount for its care.

Charlie Homer, Fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: “We all look forward to the annual delivery of the guild’s amazing cakes – it’s always such a treat to see what the group has created.

“We are so grateful to the group for putting so much time and energy into supporting our care to patients, their loved ones and the bereaved.”
