A north east charity is urging Aberdonians to channel their inner Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood to support some of the most vulnerable people in the region.
Cash for Kids is holding its second annual Big Bake Day on Friday, September 18, and is encouraging individuals, businesses and schools to get behind its fundraising drive to support sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and young people.
The event is being held in conjunction with north east bakers Murdoch Allan and Thain’s Bakery, which are donating proceeds from the sales of Big Bake Day empire biscuits to the charity.
A number of individuals, businesses and schools have already signed up to hold coffee mornings, bake sales and baking related competitions.
Cash for Kids charity manager, Michelle Ferguson, said: “We launched Big Bake Day last year and it proved to be very popular.
"The local area, like the rest of Britain, seems to have gone baking mad in recent years and Big Bake Day is a great opportunity for amateur bakers to show off their abilities to friends and colleagues, while raising some money for Cash for Kids.
“There are many ways people can get involved on Friday.
"You can don your pinny and bake cakes and biscuits to sell to friends and family, or purchase the special Murdoch Allan empire biscuits for work colleagues and encourage them to donate money to Cash for Kids in return.
“Without the continued support of the public and business community we would not be able to make the difference to the lives of the region’s youngsters that we do.”
