With National Doughnut Week (NDW) not far off (9-16 May) sponsor BakeMark UK is urging craft bakers to get a head start and make the most of the charitable week with a great giveaway.

Since National Doughnut Week began, it has raised over £630,000 for The Children’s Trust, the charity which provides specific care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities. This year is the 25th anniversary of The Children’s Trust and NDW aims to break all previous records by raising more than £50,000. In celebration of the anniversary, BakeMark UK is offering each baker who registers for NDW the chance to win either five bags of Craigmillar Doughnut Concentrate, enough to make 4,500 doughnuts, or five cases of Craigmillar Thaw & Serve doughnuts, which totals 450 topped iced ring doughnuts.

To be in with a chance of winning the competition and kick off your week with a bang, bakers need to register online at www.nationaldoughnutweek.org and they will be automatically entered into the draw. For terms and conditions, visit www.bakemark.co.uk and follow the links from the home page.

National Doughnut Week is a fantastic opportunity for bakers to increase profits, and raise their own profile, by involving the local community and media, as well as to raise money for charity; for every doughnut sold by registered participating bakers, money is donated to The Children’s Trust.
