In the spirit of the Great British Bake Off, Ruth Winters will be attempting a twelve-hour bake off in September to raise money for two charities

The twelve-hour charity bake off will be hosted by The Tile Barn & Redbrook Kitchens, raising money for Sands and Winchcombe Day Centre.

Sands is a stillbirth and neonatal death charity supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby, working to improve the care bereaved parents receive, and promoting research to reduce the loss of babies’ lives. This is a cause close to Ruth’s heart; after her granddaughter was born prematurely and died soon after, the level of support her daughter-in-law received was second to none, and attending groups with families who have been through the same situations was hugely therapeutic.

Any donations for this cause can be given by visiting Ruth’s Just Giving page, and more details can be found on the Facebook page for Ruth’s bake off.

Any cash donations on the day will go to a local day centre in Winchcombe, where Ruth’s Nan attended for many years before she died last year aged 109.

Ruth has a reputation for baking everything from fantastic wedding cakes to delicious cup cakes! So why not come along to support a great cause - and of course for a cuppa with no shortage of cakes!
