A BAKE off at Dorset County Hospital raised £300 for the maternity ward. The cake competition was held at Damers Restaurant to mark International Midwives Day.

Midwife Linda Deadman and visitor Brenda Upshall shared the honours in the whole cake category, while children’s nurse Dawn Beavans claimed the title for the best themed cake and Kelly Tuplan from the dental X-ray department had the pick of the cup cakes.
