Bake off star to help boost Marie Curie fundraiser

Norman Calder – local bake off

Moray’s star of TV’s Great British Bake Off is to take centre stage at an event promoting traditional baking while raising funds for a leading cancer care charity.

Portgordon’s Norman Calder achieved national fame when he appeared as a contestant in the popular TV baking challenge earlier this year – now he is to judge a mini-version of the competition in Elgin.

On Saturday Norman will be at the Williamson Hall on Duff Avenue in Elgin to judge the Northern Scot’s traditional baking competition, part of the Marie Curie ‘Blooming Great Tea Party’.

Mr Calder will be joined by Hazel Robinson from the Bijou, who are also supplying baking-related prizes to the winning entires.

A spokeswoman for the event told insideMoray: “Norman has also volunteered to treat us all with a special and very unusual cake that will be raffled after the tea party.

“We are delighted that he has agreed to attend and I’m sure many of his fans from throughout Moray will wish to take the opportunity to meet him face to face.”

As well as the baking there will be a raffle held with prizes donated by local businesses including a family photo-shoot, hire of a hot tub and even pole-dance lessons!

Everything raised from the event will be used to help terminally ill people in Moray benefit from the care of Marie Curie nurses. Tickets for the tea party are only £3 and include tea/coffee, home bakes and biscuits.
