BakeMark UK will be staging National Doughnut Week from 10 to 17 May, giving craft bakers the chance to increase sales and publicity while raising money for charity.

For every doughnut sold by participating bakers, funds are donated to the Children’s Trust, a national charity that provides care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs. In 2007, more than 600 bakery outlets took part, raising nearly £40,000. BakeMark’s target this year is £50,000. All bakers who register by 28 March will receive a complimentary bag of Craigmillar Doughnut Concentrate or a box of Readi-Bake Topped Ring Doughnuts to get started.
