Charity baker David Brown held another sell-out stall in Beccles at the weekend raising more than £1,000.

Mr Brown set up his popular cakes and chutney stall at the Beccles Food and Drink Festival and was overwhelmed with the support from generous customers.

He raised £1,025 for Help for Heroes, a charity which he has been supporting with his late wife Pat since 2009.

He said: “It was the third time I have been at the food festival and the third one that has been extremely good.”

Mr Brown is now looking ahead to the next stalls planned in his diary - the first being at his usual spot in Exchange Square in Beccles on Saturday, June 9 from 8am.
