Commenting on the event, Megan said: 

“We’ve been trying to spread the word to get our customers and local businesses to take part in the bake off and we’d really love to reach our target to raise £1,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. We’re determined to make it a great success and we’re calling on all budding Berrys and Hollywoods to come along and show off their baking skills.

“Cancer is something that affects almost all of us in some way and after losing my sister, Jill to the disease, this event obviously has a special significance for me. I’m also really happy that my colleague Niki will able to come to the event and I’m sure her story of beating cancer will provide hope and inspiration for others who are affected by the disease.”

The finale to the bake off will see a children’s cake decorating morning take place from 10am – 2pm on Saturday 19 October with a range of prizes on offer including expert tuition from local bakers Bake180. 

According to the charity, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with around 50,000 women and around 400 men diagnosed each year. However as a result of research and fundraising campaigns, the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer has improved significantly and five out of six women diagnosed with the disease now survive for at least five years.
