After two hugely successful events in 2012 and 2013, the charity Bake Off, which this year we are very proud to sponsor, is returning to St Andrew’s URC Church on 12th April. All money raised will be going to the A6 Acute Stroke Ward and A6 Trauma Ward at the University Hospital of Wales in the Heath, and the St Andrew's Church Funds.
This year’s Bake Off is set to be the best yet, with more categories, more music and more celebrity judges than ever before, including Beca Lyne-Pirkis from BBC's Great British Bake Off, Chris Needs MBE (BBC Radio Wales), and Lauren Harries (Celebrity Big Brother).
When he’s not judging, Britain’s Got Talent finalist Nathan Wyburn will be creating a special Bake Off-inspired piece of art on the day. (You may recall his Simon Cowell masterpiece from the show, made entirely from toast and marmite!)

The Great Roath Bake Off will open its doors at 11am to accept entries for the three main categories: Best Cake, Best Bake (bread/pie), and Best Professional Cake. Plus, if you have a budding baker of school age in your home, the Junior Bake Off is open to anyone under 16 (and can be any type of bake). Each category entry costs £3, with all proceeds going to charity - so come down and proove (baking joke - apologies) that you’ve got what it takes to win.
"We are excited to have such a reputable local business such as CPS Homes sponsor the Great Roath Bake Off," said Wayne Courtney, the man in charge. "With their involvement, we can put on a great community event we can all enjoy and raise lots of money for this year’s chosen charities."
Baking is very close to the heart for Emma James, Director of CPS Homes. "We are thrilled to be involved in such a grass-roots community event," she said. "I love to bake, and have incredibly fond memories of learning to make jam tarts with my nana, something I have carried on with my two young boys."
"When I met Wayne, what shone through was his genuine enthusiasm for the event and for the charity. It is not often you meet someone who is willing to put their time and, in the past, his own money into their community. We are more than happy to do our bit to help make this local event the success that Wayne and his team deserve."
