Luke Evans Bakery is taking part in National Craft Bakers’ Week which is raising cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The Riddings-based bakery is holding a raffle during the Week (7-13 October), as well as giving cupcake decorating demonstrations to pupils at Riddings School on 11 October.

A demonstration will also be held at its bakery in Greenhill Lane, Riddings, on 12 October from 10am to noon. Entry is £2, plus 50p for a cupcake to decorate. All proceeds will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Helen Yates, operations director at Luke Evans Bakery, said: “National Craft Bakers’ Week is an excellent way of not only raising the profile of craft bakers and what they do, but also of helping a charity too.

“We’re looking forward to giving cupcake decorating demonstrations and encouraging others to roll up their sleeves, get their aprons on and have a go.”

Now in its fifth year, the campaign is organised by The Craft Bakers’ Association and Scottish Bakers and is supported by the baking industry.

The event encourages everyone to ‘love their baker’ and visit their local craft bakery.

Luke Evans Bakery, which was founded in 1804, regularly gets involved in the campaign and this year has organised a number of events to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Last year, events held across the UK as part of National Craft Bakers’ Week raised more than £2,000.
