The Great Birstall Bake Off

The White Horse 8th Great Birstall Bake  Off in aid of Macmillan cancer support will take place over the weekend of Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September.

One of the more positive aspects of the Covid crisis is that so many of us have baked and baked… buns, bread & cake galore.

Could you put your new ‘signature’ bake forward for this fun competition and great cause?

All entries are extremely welcome, no matter your experience level, sweet or savoury from the young or less young.   

The entries need to be at the White Horse for judging on Saturday 19th between 9am & 12 noon. 
The ‘Star Bakers’ will be celebrated at the coffee morning on Sunday 20th September from 11am hosted by the White Horse.  

There will be entertainment for all the family as well as, the most important aspect, an abundance of baked treats for all to enjoy.  

Given the current situation, a delivery service / or collection option is also being explored.

All the funds raised will go straight to Macmillan’s world’s biggest coffee morning which raised an incredible £27.5 million in 2019 to help people facing cancer. 

“We would love you all to get baking and get involved for this worthwhile cause, we do not even mind a soggy bottom or two either!” said Beccy Kay founder of the event

Application forms can be found on the White Horse website on the Menu page or from the pub and further details are on their Facebook page.

On your marks, get set…Bake!  Here’s to a great 2020 event!
