The first Junior Bake-Off Heat kicked off today organised by Moray School Bank and supported by the Oakwood Cookery School and DYW Moray. The Bake-Off comprises of a number of young people aged 8-12 years old to compete against each other in demonstrating their baking skills.
The Moray School Bank is a charity which is run by Deborah Weir with the aim as a group of young volunteers to offer new school uniform and warm winter clothing to children living in financial hardship across Moray. When Deborah came to meet the DYW Moray team, we were blown away with the generosity and kindness of such a great person pushing this charity forward. The charity accepts donations of new school uniform and winter items and accepts referrals for these from schools and agencies working with children. They then distribute the clothes to children in need across Moray. It you would like to find out more see: - https://www.morayschoolbank.org/.
The Junior Bake-Off will host 48 young people across 4 heats on 10th and 18th October 2017 with the top 3 Juniors from each heat heading into the final on 22nd October 2017. The heats will include baking 2 recipes as given and then a showstopper will be required for the final. On each of these dates the Moray School Bank will be hosting tea, coffee and cake stalls to raise money for the charity. All profits made from the initiative will be given to Moray School Bank.
The heats and final will be held at the Oakwood Cookery School free of charge and a number of prizes is being provided by Oakwood and DYW Moray. The judges of the Junior Bake-Off are from Cake-away in Rothes, Eats and Treats in Fochabers and a Chef from the Oakwood Cookery School.
We expect those young people participating in the initiative will gain a lot from it and DYW Moray are delighted to support this.
