There are four categories open to everyone in the Big Bolton Charity Cake Bake: the Best Decorated Cake Award; the Tastiest Cake Award; the Most Creative Cake Award and the Biggest Cake Catastrophe Award. There will also be a Best Cake in the Competition Award. As the charity’s colour is purple, bakers might like to incorporate some purple into their entry, but this is not obligatory. Entry costs £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. The Cake Bake judging will be followed by a cake sale to raise much-needed funds for the charities and refreshments will be available, so if you can’t bake, you can buy instead.
Julie Kershaw, Clinic Manager at Laserase Bolton, says: “We’re hoping that lots of people will come along to the Big Bolton Charity Cake Bake on Saturday 10th October with their home baked masterpieces (or catastrophes!) for this fun and worthwhile event and to meet our judges, who are looking forward to tasting lots of delicious cake creations!”

“The Big Bolton Charity Cake Bake aims to raise awareness of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and of the PCOS charity, Verity, which helps to improve the lives of women living with the illness,” explains Julie Kershaw. “Every year at Laserase Bolton, we treat a number of women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome for excess hair growth and acne, but many are unaware that, for excess hair growth for example, NHS funding may be available. Working with the Royal Bolton Hospital’s Gynaecology and Dermatology departments, we aim to better direct women in Bolton to get the help and treatment they need.”
Cakes should be dropped off at Laserase Bolton, 71 Redgate Way, Farnworth, Bolton, BL4 0JL (on the Royal Bolton Hospital site opposite the ambulance station) between 11.30am and 1.30pm on the day and must include a label with your name and telephone number and the category in which you are entering. The event will be open to the public from 2.00pm and the winning cakes will be announced around 3.00pm. This will be followed by a charity auction of the winning cakes and a sale of the other cakes.
