Slices of cake and peanut brownies were served up for guests at Hanbury Court Care Home, Dagmar Road, Dagenham, for a bake-off in support of Isla Caton who has neuroblastoma.

A Motown entertainer also featured at the fundraiser which was attended by 40 people last month.

“It was wonderful, everyone really enjoyed themselves,” said Charlotte Day, the care home’s activities co-ordinator.

“Isla’s family were really thankful for everyone who came along.”

A special thank you went to Mark Russell’s One Stop Castle who kindly provided a bouncy castle for children.

Some of the funds raised also went to Great Ormond Street Hospital where Isla is currently receiving treatment.

So far, £20,138 has been raised to help the tot receive potentially life-saving immunotherapy in the future.
