LETTER: Take part in National Doughnut Week for charity

Share this article

National Doughnut Week is approaching and I would like to make a special appeal to independent craft bakers, food retailers and coffee shops across the UK to get involved in this fun, annual charity event, which takes place from 11th-18th May, in aid of The Children’s Trust.

Each year National Doughnut Week raises money for The Children’s Trust, Tadworth, a national charity that provides specialist care for some of the UK’s most severely disabled children, and rehabilitation to children with an acquired brain injury. Now in its 22nd year, National Doughnut Week has raised an incredible £755,000 for children’s charities, with the sale of over 14 million doughnuts.To help us reach a fund-raising figure of £25,000 in 2013, we need more independent craft bakers, food retailers and coffee shops to sign-up and help make this the most successful year ever. A percentage from each doughnut sale from participating businesses will be donated to The Children’s Trust. The public can show their support by treating family, friends and work colleagues to a delicious doughnut treat. So, whoever you are, please get involved in this great event and help make a difference to some very special children. For fund-raising ideas, doughnut facts, and to register your vote for the UK’s favourite doughnut, please visit: www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/doughnuts or www.facebook/nationaldoughnutweek
