Raising the Dough
Mon, 18 May 2009
Tameside College celebrated a whole week of doughnuts, as National Doughnut Week took over the college with bakery students producing a selection of the cakes to sell in the Bakery Shop. A variety of tasty doughnuts were on offer including chocolate, jam and iced.
The national event, which is sponsored by ‘BakeMark UK’, encouraged staff and students to buy a selection of the cakes, with proceeds going towards ‘The Children’s Trust’ Charity.
Each year National Doughnut Week raises money for ‘The Children’s Trust’, a charitable organisation helping young people with disabilities. Since the national event started 25 years ago, the initiative has raised over £600,000. Tameside College always plays a large part in the fundraising with 30p of each doughnut sold going to ‘The Children’s Trust’.
Bakery Tutor Bill Barlow said, “The students loved baking and decorating the doughnuts. They have taught themselves some key bakery skills whilst raising money for such a good cause.”
