Bakers and businesses can register now to join in with the National Doughnut Week fundraising fun this May.

Sponsored by CSM Bakery Solutions, the week raises funds for The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. Last year, National Doughnut Week raised £33,679 for the charity with the help of hundreds of independent bakers, cafes and shops.

Independent Hertfordshire bakery Simmons Bakers raised over £900 for the charity last year.

“We produced an extra range of hand-finished luxury doughnuts, and sold over 3,500 doughnuts, donating 25p each,” said the business. “It was a fantastic way for us to offer support in the way we know best – sweet treats! We are honoured to have been able to contribute to such a worthy cause and will continue to do so each year.”

And Welsh business Jenkins Bakeries said its retail staff and bakery teams looked forward to the seasonal event.

“Not only is it a great opportunity to showcase our range of doughnuts but also to support The Children’s Trust. We look forward to supporting again in 2019.”

Bakers who register to get involved will receive a pack of promotional materials from CSM with everything they need to make the most of the occasion and raise as much money as possible through sales of doughnuts.
