For six weeks, from November 1, teams at Ayton and Snainton Medical Practice will be creating their own Great British Bake Off and selling the goods for £1 a slice.

Each week, the teams will be creating a themed bake, just like the TV show. The themes include cakes, biscuits, savouries, bakes from your childhood, ‘not baked’ week and Christmas bakes. The event will also feature a raffle with donated prizes up for grabs.

Kerry Kay, practice administrator who is organising the event, said: “We have chosen to support our local hospice this year as we realise that during the pandemic fundraising efforts have been seriously depleted.”

Kerry added: "We are hoping to have a local celebrity guest to come and support our Bake Off event during the final week.”
