THE STROKE Association’s community and events fund-raising manager Sophie James is celebrating after winning a purple bake sale contest.

It raised £129 for the charity and was held as part of events organised for Action on Stroke Month, which runs throughout May.

The cash was collected by selling cakes, along with tea and coffee.

Sophie won a prize apron donated by Bromsgrove embroidery and printing specialists Focal Image.

Bernice Jones, the Stroke Association’s regional head of operations for the West Midlands, said the event was a wonderful success.

“We had a total of 29 entries of cakes, brownies, biscuits, and cupcakes from the staff, volunteers and stroke survivors at the Life After Stroke Centre.

“We also had entries from Lolita’s Bakery and Coffee 2 on Bromsgrove High Street.”

And she thanked everyone who gave their time and donated cakes.

The judges on the day were Shirley Cadman and Christine Hickman-Smith from Chaddersley Corbett WI, Ian Spence and Nina Das Gupta from BBC Hereford and Worcester, and stroke survivor, Stephen Wright.
