A CAKE in the shape of India Mill raised £137.07 for East Lancashire Hospice after being raffled off.

Shoppers at Darwen Market had been buying raffle tickets in the hope of winning the impressive structure.

Ticket number 149 was drawn out by fundraiser Caitlin Jones and the winner is asked to contact the market to claim their prize.

The cake was donated by Michelle Conlon who said: “I am absolutely delighted at the amount and I hope the winner enjoys the cake.”

Whilst I'm utterly gutted to have not won the cake, all for myself, I thought that the addition of a steeplejack was an inspired touch. Although others did disagree, I'm sure it's supposed to resemble local legend, Fred Dibnah.

Well done to the winner and I hope you are thoroughly ill after eating it all.
