Award-winning home builders Miller Homes is supporting National Baking Week in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

Its Birkacre Park development, just outside Chorley, is hosting a bake sale on Saturday, October 19, from 11am to 2pm.

Miller Homes’ Birkacre Park marketing suite, located on Lower Burgh Way, Chorley, will be selling cakes of all varieties to visitors.

Cake lovers are invited to come along and buy cakes or drop some off if they would like to contribute to the worthwhile cause.

The bake sale takes place during National Baking Week (October 14-20) during which cake enthusiasts across the country will be asked to bake and sell scrumptious treats to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

Michaela Lancaster, sales and marketing director at Miller Homes, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting National Baking Week and hope to raise much-needed funds for Great Ormond Street’s Children’s Charity.

“We will have a fantastic range of cakes for sale and hope people can drop in and buy one or donate a cake for sale.”

Hayley Richardson, senior fundraising executive at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: “We’re excited to be teaming up with National Baking Week and would like to thank Miller Homes.

“The money from National Baking Week will make a real difference to patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital, by helping us to deliver our world class care in 21st century facilities.

“We are looking to improve our facilities so we can treat more children.”

Birkacre Park is a quiet gem of a development that has been designed to emulate the look and feel of a classic Lancashire village.

Oozing character, the village includes a feature pond, cobbled streets and vintage style lighting, giving the village an intangible charm, individuality and a great community feel too.
