Look who's joined the party!

Expert Pancake Maker and former star of the Great British Bake Off, Benjamina Ebuehi has joined the Big Pancake Party! Here's why she got involved,

I worked as a teaching assistant before I was on Bake Off and I saw kids arriving at school hungry every day. For some of these kids, their free school dinner was the only meal they’d eat that day. It was very disheartening to see. 

“I wanted to get involved with the Big Pancake Party because I don’t want to see kids going to school hungry and what better way to use my love of pancakes?”

If you want to join Benjamina and hundreds of others that are stepping up to make a difference to those going hungry in England, then you can register for your fundraising pack today - with two weeks to go, now is the perfect time!
