Helping raise funds at ‘The Great Big Eccleshall Bake Off’

Posted on

Saturday, 18th June will see Cuttlestones’ auctioneer and valuer Dave Eglington undertake an auction with a difference, as he sells of the cakes, biscuits and other sweet treats baked as part of ‘The Great Big Eccleshall Bake Off’ to help raise funds for Eccleshall Pre School.

The auction will follow a baking competition, where keen cooks can enter their wares in categories that include Victoria Sponge Cake, Scones, Cupcakes, Novelty Cakes, Fruit Cake, Chocolate Brownies and Chocolate Cake. Children are also being encouraged to whip up a treat and enter the Bake Off. Their categories are Five Years and Under – Decorated Biscuit, Ten Years and Under – Fairy Cakes and 16 years and Under – Muffins.

The competition is free to enter and will take place on Saturday 18th June from 2pm to 4pm at Eccleshall Community Centre, Shaws Lane with plenty on offer to entertain the whole family. In addition to a variety of stalls including toy and sweets, chocolate fountains, face painting, bouncy castle, tombola and a refreshment stall serving homemade cream teas there will be a pre school play tent with lots of activities for the little ones including a sandpit, painting and soft play area.

Cuttlestones is proud to support the event, not only in terms of offering its auction services but by sponsoring a competition category, as Dave explains:

We love getting involved in community events and the Great Eccleshall Bake Off is a really innovative fundraising idea. I’m really looking forward to the auction and helping to raise as much as possible for Eccleshall Pre School – although can’t promise I won’t be tempted to bid on some of the delicious lots myself!
