A BAKERY has raised hundreds of pounds for the Weymouth lifeboat with a haunted gingerbread house.

Sgt Bun Bakery, in Lanehouse Rocks Road, collected £200 for Weymouth RNLI Lifeboat by raffling the giant house this Halloween.

Michelle Wilson and Clare Rogers won the spooky treat on behalf of My Place Dorset, a Weymouth-based day service for adults with autism.

Bakery owner Ian Temple said: “It’s two good causes that are benefitting now so it’s come off really well.

“The gingerbread house needed to go somewhere like that.

“I hope everyone in the group enjoys it.

“We’re really happy with how much we’ve raised for the RNLI.

“It’s a great amount to collect in a couple of weeks, especially in this day and age.”

Nick Massey, RNLI deputy second coxswain, said: “We really want to thank everyone at Sgt Bun for raising so much money for us.

“It’s brilliant and we’re really glad to receive it, all donations help us save lives at sea.”
