Ready, steady bake

Ready, steady bake – Charity Bake Off – plea for donations to support the Bring and Buy on Friday 28th October 

For those who have missed it you will be pleased to know that the “Bring and Buy” is back, if you can help with a contribution of a cake(s), scones, biscuits to the event it would be much appreciated.

It is a Charity event on Friday 28th October at Stokesley Town Hall. One of the charities which we have for 2022 is Great North Air Ambulance (GNAAS). It is a service that all local cyclists are very thankful exists, for but hopefully never need to use. All profits from refreshment sales will go to charity.

This plea is not only limited to club members, if your partner, parent, sibling, child can bake then please feel encourage contributions. If you could get you culinary creation to the Town Hall by 7pm it would be much appreciated.   

Through a fun competition we aim to uncover and show off talents. Do you have a secret recipe which you need the world to see, or just one where your family ask you to make again. Never baked before and want to give it a try?

Unlike the famous “bake-off” on TV, any shape, flavour, size is welcome. They don’t even need to be perfectly formed if it/they taste good.

Aiming for simplicity, there are three categories

·       Hmmm – that’s good” – delivering on taste

·       “Wow – that looks great” – most visually interesting item  

·       “Hey, it’s good for you” – the healthy option  

There are not strict rules on how this will be judged and may be swayed by smiles and reactions of people attending.  Again, the emphasis is on a fun, charity event…..although obtaining bragging rights always feels good 😉

Ingredients – please let us know what they contain and what they don’t contain so that we can inform people who may have dietary restrictions or desires. You don’t have to publish a full recipe, although in many cases, if people like it, they will ask, but of course you can keep family recipes a secret it desired!

If you can spare some time on the evening of Friday 28th October to help with the running of the refreshments area this would be much appreciated. Please could let me know if this is the case (

Looking forward to seeing what recipes and skills are within the local cycling community.
