A supermarket produced a one-off cake to help the RAF Police — the oldest military police service in the UK — celebrate its centenary.

Asda, Newark, offered to make the cake for free to accompany a celebration for former members, but the offer was turned down because of the amount of work the store already does in support of the Armed Forces.

The cake, featuring the RAF Police crest, was made in store by Mr Keith Hammersley. It was presented ahead of a carvery meal at the Newark Conservative Club, attended by around 30 people with links to the RAF Police.

Former RAF policeman Mr Chris Gangel said: “Asda has been so helpful to the Services’ community through the RAF Wings Appeal, Poppy Appeal and in support of the Newark Patriotic Fund.”
