If you haven’t already registered for this year’s National Doughnut Week, why not join sponsor BakeMark UK in raising funds for The Children’s Trust and help children like Max. "Max was born weighing less than 3.5lb and encountered breathing difficulties," explains Joanne Toner, corporate fundraiser at The Children’s Trust. "Five months later, doctors discovered a benign tumour blocking his windpipe."

"At just two months old, Max’s parents were told he was suffering from brain damage. Max had to undergo chemotherapy and two operations to help him feed properly and prevent his skull from swelling. The Children’s Trust’s outreach nursing service enables Max’s parents to take a break from caring for him, knowing that he’s safe in his own home."
