St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice is inviting the area’s home cooks to rise to the challenge for the second heat of its fun-filled Great Hospice Bake Off & Sale 2013.
The Winsford hospice is looking for the freshest, quirkiest and most delicious culinary creations from across South and Mid Cheshire to be judged on Sunday, 24 February, and help raise invaluable funds for the hospice.
The tasty competition will take place in the lecture room at the hospice at Grosvenor House, Queensway, Winsford, CW7 1BH, and once they have been judged and placed on mouth-watering display, all the gorgeous food will be on sale from 1.30pm onwards.
There are now 10 categories for cooks to compete in, for a donation of just £2 per entry.
St Luke’s Fundraising Events Co-ordinator Rachael Knight commented: “The Great Hospice Bake Off 2013 is a fantastic opportunity for the people of South and Mid Cheshire to show off their skills in the kitchen.
“There is a great fun atmosphere at the event and I guarantee the hall will smell amazing.
“You can enter as many categories as you like and judging is anonymous with only the winners’ names announced. The winner of each category will win a prize.”
New to this year’s competition is the children under 12’s category which is free to enter.
The winning entries of the adult heat will progress to the Grand Live final of the Great Hospice Bake Off which forms part of the hospice’s Silver Jubilee celebrations this year.
The overall winner will receive a host of fabulous prizes to include a fantastic day at a famous cookery school.
