It’s the most delicious week of the year – and the icing on the cake? It’s raising funds for a great cause too.

National Doughnut Week is back and bakers all over the country have been busy creating the most amazing, sugar-coated treats.

The event runs from today (May 7) until May 15, raising funds for The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.

To get involved in the fun, simply make a purchase from a participating baker – eating doughnuts just got even better.
