A local opticians in Acomb recently baked up a storm and sold their wares to customers, all in a bid to raise funds for their local scout group.

The team of opticians at Acomb Specsavers raised a total of £91.80 for Acomb Scout Group, with an aim of helping to fund repairs for their scout hut.

Deryck Watts, store director at Acomb Specsavers, said: 'We always love going that extra mile in our local community, especially when it’s an opportunity to let others know what’s going on in and around Acomb and highlight how great a place it is to live and work.

'Whilst we may not be the best bakers around, I think it’s safe to say that our customers were impressed enough with our efforts to pay for a slice and help keep the spirit alive by helping to fund repairs for their new hut!'
