Visitors to a clothes shop helped raise money for charity through cake.

Smith & Smith clothes shop in Bridport hosted a cake sale in aid of dementia.

Competitions within the store included name the celebrity behind the cupcake, and guest how many cupcakes on a poster.

The sale raised £150 for the Alzheimer's Society.

Sue Wilkinson, who helped to organise the morning, said: "Many thanks to Smith & Smith shop owner Sue England, her staff, and local bakers Punch & Judy for supplying cakes and a fruit punch."

In the UK, someone develops dementia every three minutes, but there is currently no cure.

Sian Neville, community fundraiser for Alzheimer's Society in Dorset and Somerset, said: "We are extremely grateful to the staff and customers of Smith & Smith who united with us to support Alzheimer's Society's Cupcake Day.

"I'd like to thank everyone who baked and bought cupcakes at their event to raise vital funds.

"Dementia is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer and affect one million by 2021.

"Events like our Cupcake Day will help us raise money to find a cure, improve care and offer help and understanding for people affected by dementia."

As well as funding research and campaigning to improve care for people affected by dementia, Alzheimer's Society runs a Memory Café, Activity Group and Coastal Catch-up peer support group in Bridport.

The society also runs the Memory Support and Advisory Service across Dorset, and the society's support workers offer information and practical guidance to help you understand dementia, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future.
