A MARCH woman is making fund-raising look a piece of cake as she edges closer to a £1,000 target.
Angela Ellington is helping the Sue Ryder Care's Thorpe Hall Hospice, where her sister-in-law Joy was taken care of five years ago before she died.
Mrs Ellington, a childminder, handed a £442.97 cheque to Thorpe Hall last week, the proceeds from one of her cake stalls she holds on March market place and from a pampered chef evening attended by many of her childminding friends.
Mrs Ellington, of Beech Grove, said: "I never thought I would manage £1,000 in a year because it is quite an extortionate figure but it has been a piece of cake."

Elinor Millward, of Sue Ryder Care, who accepted the cheque, said: "We are so grateful to Angela for her continued support.
"We really appreciate the hard work she puts in because it is so valuable to us."

The money she raises is going to buy bereavement books for the library at Thorpe Hall.
