Councillors at Gedling Borough Council are to become baking heroes by holding a bake off competition to support BBC Children in Need. The money raised will go on to help disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
On Thursday 13 November, 12 councillors will be presenting their home-made cakes to the judges, Vernon Coaker MP and a Director from the Council. The cakes will be judged on look and taste before being sold to staff to raise money for the charity.
BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. It relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraising heroes and supporters across the UK, who donate their time and money to support the Appeal. Whether through cake sales, dance offs or treasure hunts, every penny of the money raised goes towards supporting projects across the UK.
Every single penny raised by BBC Children in Need goes directly to UK projects working with children and young people who may be affected by neglect, abuse or poverty, or those who have faced challenges in their lives such as serious illness, disabilities and psychological disorders.
