Spalding United fans were well-fed on and off the pitch as one of the club’s most popular fans went bakery crazy for charity on Saturday.

Peter Bailey (nine) gave football fans from Spalding and visiting Nottinghamshire side Belper Town a delicious selection of cakes to choose from, whilst fundraising for The National Autistic Society.

The cake sale raised £285.20 ahead of World Autism Awareness Week, from next Monday, and Jo Bailey, Peter’s nan, said: “It was quite a good afternoon, apart from the rain.

“We got absolutely soaked but we didn’t give up and just carried on.

“People were really good in putting money in the collection boxes, buying cakes and then coming back for more.

“We had fruit cakes, banana tea loaves, chocolate brownies, Victoria sponges, cup cakes and even Spalding United-themed cakes.
