A sweet way to help children in need... views.

THE ever popular National Doughnut Week is approaching and I would like to make a special appeal to the public to support this annual charity event from May 12-19 for the Children's Trust.

This is a great way to share some delicious doughnuts with family, friends and colleagues and also raise some dough for charity. To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, this year's theme is 'Diamond Doughnuts' and bakers taking part will be creating their own 'Diamond Doughnut' tributes.

All you need to do is to purchase doughnuts from participating high street bakers - wherever you see the National Doughnut Week posters displayed. A percentage from each sale will be donated to the Children's Trust, a national charity that provides care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs, and rehabilitation to children with an acquired brain injury.

Now in its 21st year, National Doughnut Week has raised an incredible total of pounds 735,000 for children's charities, with the sale of over 14 million doughnuts. To ensure this year's event is successful we need everyone's support. So bakers, if you haven't done so, please register now and get baking, and all you lovely people get buying.
