A national cancer charity is calling on bakers across Doncaster to take part in a fundraising bake off.

Breakthrough Breast Cancer is asking people to bake cakes and help save lives for this year’s super-sweet Breakthrough Bake Off.

Now in its second year, the Bake Off is back and bigger than ever, challenging those with flour power to help fund Breakthrough’s life-saving research.

Georgia Bridgwood, Head Baker for the Breakthrough Bake Off, says: “We hope everybody is ready and raring to go for this year’s Breakthrough Bake Off. The delicious campaign first launched last year and was a huge success so we’re hoping even more people will take part this year.

“It’s heart-breaking that 1,000 UK women die from breast cancer each month – this is why Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s work is so vital. If we don’t act now, today, more and more families will face a future without the women they love, so please – for the women you love, sign up today and help us beat breast cancer for good.”

Taking part couldn’t be easier; whether you’re a master-baker or a practicing pâtissier, all you need to do is gather friends, family and colleagues to share some home-baked goodies and raise some cash.

This year’s Bake Off day is October 17, but people wanting to take part can hold a Breakthrough Bake Off anytime, anywhere, during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
