Kate Ayre, held a Royal Bake Off at her home in Ilkley to commemorate the Queen’s 90th birthday and to raise funds for AHCUK. Kate’s sister, Alison, provides respite care for Rhys Jones, so Kate wanted to help raise the profile of the condition and make a contribution towards research funding.
Everyone brought along a homemade cake or plate of buns which were then judged by our Mum, an experienced home baker (and a dead ringer for the Queen!). After an enjoyable couple of hours of tea, cake and royal quizzes, everyone made donations to buy the remaining baked goods, which raised an impressive £347.
Thanks Kate for all your hard work in organising the event and the generosity of everyone who attended.
