National Doughnut Week 2010

National Doughnut Week 2010

Tameside College took part in National Doughnut Week again this year, pledging to give the money made from doughnut sales to The Children’s Trust charity to help children with disabilities and complex health needs across the UK and Ireland.

National Doughnut Week is organised by Master Baker Christopher Freeman from Dunn’s Bakery of Crouch End and is exclusively sponsored by baking industry manufacturer and supplier ‘Bake Mark UK’. During the week-long event, participating bakeries make donations to The Children’s Trust for every doughnut sold. Since the first National Doughnut Week took place in 1992 more than £650,000 has been raised for charities by High Street Bakeries across the UK.

The Bakery students really enjoyed making and finishing the doughnuts and were pleased that they were supporting such a worthy cause. In total £27.90 was raised for the worthy cause.

The money raised will be donated to The Children’s Trust to provide specialist care, treatment, education and rehabilitation for children with profound disabilities and complex health needs.
