More than £1,000 has been raised to support two charities, thanks to a community cake sale.

Sarah Gibson hosted ‘Sarah’s Great Big Cake Sale’ at The Selsey Centre on Manor Road on Saturday, raising a total of £1,020 for two charities, Support After Suicide and Survivors of Bereavement After Suicide.

The funds raised will be split equally between the organisations.

Along with the cupcake sale, there was a tombola, and the day finished with a big raffle prize draw.

The first prize was a Smarties chocolate finger cake, and the second prize was a three layered lemon drizzle cake.

Sarah said: “It was so fantastic all round. There was a great turn out, and the cakes sold out so quick.

“I would like to thank all that helped, donated, came to show support - Selsey has been amazing. I am so grateful to each and every one.

“I have been amazed and overwhelmed by the support of local people with donations of raffle and tombola prizes, sales and general support.”
