National Doughnut Week is returning next year from 11–18 May for more fundraising.

The event, sponsored by CSM Bakery Solutions, raises funds for The Children’s Trust which helps those suffering from brain injuries. The week has been running for 27 years and was launched in 1991 by Christopher Freeman, owner of Dunn’s Bakery.

Since its launch, National Doughnut Week has raised a total of £906,046 for charity, including £392,655 for The Children’s Trust.

This year’s event in May raised over £25,000 with the help of hundreds of independent bakers, cafés and shops.

Registration will open in 2019 on the National Doughnut Week website.
