Get baking for a good cause
6:00pm Sunday 20th January 2013 in News
KEEN bakers in Trafford have been issued a challenge, raising money for a good cause at the same time.
Bakers of all levels are invited to enter the Great Lymm British Red Cross Bake Off, which takes place at Lymm village hall on Sunday, February 3.
The Bake Off, which costs £2.50 per entry, will raise funds for the British Red Cross.
People can bring along their creations between 9am and 10am, and there are four categories.
The winner will be revealed at 11.30am - picked by a host of local foodie judges, including the North West’s very own Michelin-Star chef Aiden Byrne.
And if entrants decide to donate their delicious creations, these will be auctioned off at 11.45pm to those attending to raise even more for the British Red Cross.
The judges will also be hosting a variety of baking master-classes, including a session from The Little Velvet Cake Company on cake decoration.
There are four categories – technical challenge, adult signature bake, junior signature bake and handmade bread.”
The British Red Cross works locally, nationally and across the globe to help vulnerable people recover from crisis, whoever they are. In Cheshire, this includes care in the home, first aid training, refugee services, medical equipment loan and humanitarian education, to name but a few of the essential services.
Clare Henderson, senior fundraising manager for the Red Cross in Greater Manchester and Cheshire, said: “The Great Lymm British Red Cross Bake Off is a wonderful opportunity for local people to challenge themselves, raise money for a great cause, and have a lot of fun. Baking, thanks to the TV series, is extremely popular again and it is great to see people returning to a traditional form of fundraising and community working. We are also very grateful to Aiden for lending his time and expertise for the event.”
