Over 500 craft bakers across the UK are taking part in National Doughnut Week this week, sel-ling doughnuts to raise money for charity The Children’s Trust.

Christopher Freeman, owner of Dunn’s Bakery in Crouch End, London, and founder of National Doughnut Week said: “We hope to do better than last year, when we raised more than £40,000 for The Children’s Trust.”

National Doughnut Week, sponsored by BakeMark UK, has also attracted widespread media attention – the event has been mentioned on both Radio 1 and Radio 2 and coverage is set to be broadcast on national TV.

Mr Freeman said: “This, together with support from the national and local press, will help us raise even more money for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs.”
