Schools Charity Bake Off in Blandford
9:42am 28th January 2013
Pupils at a Dorset boarding School have been taking part in their very own bake-off!
The sixth formers from the historical Bryanston School in Blandford baked over 70 loaves of fresh bread for their special charities weekend.
The ten students had been perfecting their bread making skills after school for weeks leading up the charity event, that raised 350 pounds.
Steve Richardson teaches dough handling, shaping and finishing on a bread making for beginners course at the School, he said; 'We've been baking bread every week for the past year with rather splendid and interesting results.
Around 20-25 kilos of bread are produced at each week's class and the surplus is taken up to the school's dining hall for supper. It's proved so popular with students and teachers that the students plan to support community groups by baking bread for good causes.
