India Mill cake to be raffled off for East Lancashire Hospice
Updated 11:56am Tuesday 21st January 2014 in News
AN impressive cake in the shape of India Mill is being raffled off for East Lancashire Hospice.
Michelle Coulon, 49, made the cake, based on the iconic landmark, for a friend’s birthday. But in the end it was not needed, so Michelle, of Mayfield Flats, gave it to the market to be raffled.
Michelle, who bakes cakes purely as a hobby, said: “It took about 10 days to make. It is fruit cake with a bit of sponge at the top. It had to be fruit as it needs to be sturdy.
“I wanted to raise money for the hospice as I have had a few friends with cancer and I do a bit of work in the hospice shop.”
Raffle tickets costing £1 a strip are available in the Darwen Markets office in the Annexe.
