Wooden spoons at the ready for the Virtual Bake Off!

With the UK renowned for being a nation of bakers and most of us currently stuck at home, we are delighted to announce our first Virtual Bake Off challenge!

We’ve launched the challenge to provide us all with a bit of light-hearted fun in the run up to Easter, and to support the NET Coronavirus Appeal, which raised an amazing £11 million in just its first week to help those affected by the crisis.

As such, we’re encouraging absolutely everyone to take part: genius bakers or novices, individuals or families, and to bake anything you like – from brownies and cookies to cakes and scones. All you have to do is share your creations in photo or video form, whether they’re stunning successes or dismal disasters, in our special Virtual Bake Off online book.

As well as providing a lovely opportunity to connect with others virtually, as well as a great way to engage the family during lockdown, there will of course be prizes – and not just for the best baking. We’ll also have some celebrities both joining in and also judging the creations.

And, while entry is free, because we’re supporting NET we’re asking anyone who is able to give, to follow the link in the book, and donate to its appeal.

Of course, the more people we can get to join in, the more fun it will be, and the more money we can get to NET, so we’re also encouraging people to spread the word. Perhaps you could challenge your colleagues as well as your friends and family, or share the opportunity with your charity’s supporters!

Follow this link for more information, and to submit your entries.
