FAMILIES and music lovers are being invited to enjoy music and cake by the lake - all in the name of charity.

The fundraiser next month is being organised by Ambleside-based Brathay Trust and features a line-up of local talent plus a bake off.

Backed by local family businesses and raising money for Brathay’s work with young people, highlights of the day include music to suit all tastes with performances by Furness Building Society Charity stars and a Disney inspired sing-a-long with characters such as Elsa, Rapunzal and Captain Hook.

And Becki Fishwick will delight audiences with songs right through from the 40s to the present day.

A baking competition for under 16s will be judged by local WI cake expert Dorrie Galbraith alongside contributions from Ambleside’s Apple Pie Shop, Lakeland and Carlisle-based Pioneer Foods will keep cake and food fans happy too.

As well as a tots fancy dress sing-along there are traditional children’s games, fun interactive baking demonstrations and lots going on in thidyllic location on the northern shores of Windermere.

Thanks to sponsors Glaxosmithkline and Bluefin Insurance entrance to the event is free and some parking is available.
