A RIDDINGS bakery gave customers the perfect excuse to dive into a doughnut by taking part in National Doughnut Week and raising cash for charity.

Luke Evans Bakery donated 10p from the sale of each doughnut to charity during the week, which ran from Saturday May 12 to Saturday May 19.

National Doughnut Week has raised more than £735,000 for the Children’s Trust since it was first launched – and this year organisers hope to collect a further £30,000 for the good cause.

Luke Evans Bakery managing director David Yates said: “Last year our customers really got behind National Doughnut Week and munched their way through 1,200, which meant we could hand over a decent donation to the Children’s Trust.

“We hope customers will support this good cause again this year.”

The bakery added two new doughnuts to its range during National Doughnut Week – chocolate filled and custard filled doughnuts - which were on sale at the firm’s shop in Greenhill Lane.

The firm supplies around 300 trade and wholesale customers across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire, including shops, schools and delis.
