Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity to benefit from National Baking Week
Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner and former Great British Bake Off finalist Ruth Clemens launched the official start of National Baking Week at Westfield Stratford on Monday 15 October by unveiling a giant map of the UK made entirely of cake.
Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity has been chosen as this year’s charity partner for National Baking Week. The week is designed to get Britain baking with the money raised through bake sales helping the hospital to provide world-class care for its young patients and their families and to carry out pioneering research into childhood illness.
Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the top five paediatric research hospitals in the world, treating children with complex and life-threatening conditions. The hospital manages over 200,000 patient visits every year.
During National Baking Week, we’re encouraging people up and down the country to go baking crazy. Cake sales are easy, delicious and a great way to get together with all your friends. You can support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity by baking and selling cakes to your colleagues, friends or customers.
Ahead of the start of National Baking Week Great Ormond Street Hospital patients also got to decorate cookies with Lisa Faulkner in the hospital canteen.
