Get baking to raise funds

The Great British Bake-Off might be nearly over – but we are holding own cake contest in Bradford.

And former GBBO contestant Sandy Docherty, who works in the district, has agreed to act a chief taster and judge for the event on Friday, 2 November.

The fun competition will raise funds for Mind in Bradford and Scar Cover Up Freedom Fund (Scuff).

All cake-makers are invited to submit their favourite bake, with the entry fee only £2.50.

Scuff has been set up by Jessica King, of Bradford, after her experience of having tattoos on her inner arms to cover her self-harm scars.

Her life has been transformed by the tattoos and she has set up a fund to try to help others who would like to do the same but cannot afford the cost of specialist tattooing.

Sandy appeared on the Great British Bake-Off in 2015 and works in welfare at Titus Salt School in Baildon, so helping with mental health and self-harm issues is close to her heart.

The winner will receive a fantastic trophy donated by Woods Trophies and Engravers on Daisy Hill Lane, Bradford.

Judging will be held at the mental health charity’s base in Kenburgh House at 28 Manor Row, Bradford, at 3pm and cake-lovers are invited to drop in to try a slice. Admission, from 2.30pm, will cost £3 which will include a raffle ticket, drink and slice of cake – over-18s only please.

Cakes can be dropped off on the day and entrants can fill in their form then. To enter a cake, or for more details, search for The Great British Bake-Off on Facebook on
