Roll up those sleeves and raise funds for The Great Pink Bake Off

Bake off

A very worthy cause indeed.

There’s nothing like a bit of wholesome baking to unwind.

Indeed, we’re all partial to blaring the tunes, rolling up our sleeves and getting down to business in the kitchen, but baking is even better when we’re doing it for an excellent cause.

Looking for an excuse to rattle up some treats? Look no further than the Great Pink Bake Off, which raises some vital funds for Breast Cancer Ireland.

Sponsored by Dr Oetker, this event runs throughout October, which is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Ready to take part in the festivities? Here’s everything you need to know.
