A DEVELOPER will swap building for baking at a community fundraiser.

Bloor Homes will host its own Great British Bake Off-inspired competition on Friday, at its development in Drayton.

The contest will run on Friday for Macmillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee Morning event.

Drayton residents have been invited to bring their best bakes for judgement at Bloor's housing estate The Dovecote, by 10.30am on the day.

Entries will be judged by the development's site manager before being sliced and sold, along with any other cakes donated for the Macmillan fundraising event.

Bloor's sales director Vanessa Macnee said:"The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is such an iconic fundraising event for a really important charity that all of the team were really keen to get involved with.

"We wanted to go the extra mile though and, with the nation once again caught up in Bake Off fever ,we thought it would be really fun to host our own baking competition to raise extra money.

"The Bloor Homes team will be hitting the kitchens themselves to create their very best bakes and we would like to invite as many local residents as possible to get involved.

"They will be helping to raise funds for a fantastic cause and might even get crowned Bloor Homes star baker."
