The sponsor of National Doughnut Week, BakeMark, is encouraging all bakers to get involved and help raise money for The Children’s Trust.

The next fundraising week will take place from 9-16 May, 2009, and will be the 25th anniversary of the initiative, which raises money for specific care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities.

National Doughnut Week has raised £630,000 in its 14-year history and the aim this year is to raise over £50,000. Each participating baker will have the opportunity to boost profits, involve the local community and media, and raise money for the charity with every doughnut sold. Anyone who registers will receive posters, balloons, collection boxes and PR support, as well as the chance to be promoted on the National Doughnut Week website.
