Charity baker David Brown will be back in Beccles for another fundraising stall next weekend.

Mr Brown, of Burgh St Peter, will be in Exchange Square on Saturday, February 24, from 8am to 2pm raising funds for Help for Heroes.

He will be selling individual sausage rolls, pork pies, beef pasties, lamb pasties and ploughman’s pasties. He will also be offering family size beef and vegetable and chicken and bacon pies, along with a selection of homemade cakes.

Mr Brown and his late wife Pat have raised more than £77,000 for the charity to date, with Mr Brown hopeful of reaching the £80,000 mark by July this year.

The couple were inspired to start fundraising for Help for Heroes through their daughter Sally Williams, who has served in the army for more than 20 years.

His first stall of 2018, held on January 27, raised £738 for the cause.
