We want all children to enjoy the fun that can be had in the kitchen and learn important life skills along the way. That’s why we’re sponsoring the Buster’s Bake Off 2019 competition.
Inspired by the phenomenal success of The Great British Bake Off, Buster’s Bake Off encourages children to discover the joy of baking whilst raising money for important road safety and literacy work with schools.
Buster’s Bake Off is organised by the children’s educational charity Inspire Schools, which operates in Kent as the KM Charity Team. The sponsored competition challenges primary and secondary school children from London, Kent and Sussex to showcase their baking skills, creating sweet and savoury sensations and helping to raise funds for the charity’s Walk on Wednesday initiative and Buster’s Book Club.
Schools have already held their sponsored Buster’s Bake Off heats and children across the region are preparing for the final in September.
Our sales director, Peter McKenna, is on the judging panel and he’s looking forward to a grand final of taste sensations. He will be joined by Great British Bake Off star, Jane Beedle, who was a finalist in the 2016 series of the popular baking show.
Peter said: “Principals by CH&CO is really excited to be involved in Buster’s Bake Off. Eating well is an important life skill and one that every child has a right to learn. We celebrate good food and give children the opportunity and confidence to see, smell, taste, feel and get hands on with different ingredients. Buster’s Bake Off epitomises this!”
“It’s massively important to get children engaged with food, get them into the kitchen, and get them experimenting with food with their families. It’s great that so many schools have got involved with the baking and also raised money for road safety and literacy initiatives – all of which give children a great head start in life. I’m looking forward to the final and being able to taste everything that’s been made. The big event coincides with the 2019 series of The Great British Bake Off on Channel 4, so we’re fully expecting baking fever to take hold!”
Entrants are required to create a sweet or savoury bake that uses a maximum of ten ingredients and can be made in a 90-minutes or less.
Best of luck to all the finalists!
