‘I am so proud of the success of The Great Roath Bake Off and it’s been amazing to watch it grow every year. 2015 was an exceptional year for our team raising more money for charity than ever before. Team members made up of volunteers and previous Bake Off winners set up workshops in a local school and we were able to pay for everything so children could come along and learn about baking and cake decorating. The workshops were very popular and we aim to do more in the future. There was an outstanding turn out for last years Christmas Junior Bake Off with entries from as far away as Swansea coming to Roath. The dedicated team of volunteers work hard throughout the year at various other Bake Offs and are all geared up to make 2016 the best one yet. Personally I look forward to seeing the community come out and show its support to our event. We started working on The Bake Off in early January and want to put on an event that not just Roath but all of cardiff can be proud of’ event organiser Wayne Courtney.
