Michelin-starred chef Josh Eggleton invites everyone to Bake a Difference for Bristol-based cancer charity Penny Brohn UK this summer.

Josh, who turned down jobs with top chefs to co-own and run the Pony & Trap in Chew Magna for 11 years alongside sister Holly, wants people to get creative for the UK’s leading holistic cancer charity.

The keen baker has whipped up two recipes to inspire (which we’ll share later this week!), but hopes people will let their imaginations run wild, perhaps with a cake sale, afternoon tea, Bake Off competition, party or world record attempt?

Josh, who has represented the South West on the BBC’s Great British Menu multiple times, said: “I’ve always been a big baking fan – in fact one of the first dishes I learned to make when I was young was a Victoria Sponge.

“This is a great cause and I hope to help get as many people as possible involved.

“Together, we can support more people with cancer to live as well as possible for as long as possible.

“I hope people are inspired to get baking so the wonderful charity can continue its amazing work.”

Participants receive a free fundraising pack, packed with ideas, posters and flyers to promote their event, banners, balloons and collection buckets.

Penny Brohn spokeswoman Sarah Godfrey added: “We’re thrilled to have Josh fronting our campaign.

“People can host whatever takes their fancy – why not get your family, friends, school, office or organisation involved?

“We’ve previously seen giant garden parties, competitive cook offs and old-fashioned chinwags over cake.

“It’s a brilliant way to catch up with people whilst helping us continue to support families facing cancer, before, during and after treatment.”

With over 36 years’ experience, Penny Brohn understands that cancer impacts everything and the number affected is increasing.

Its Bristol Whole Life Approach supports people with cancer and close supporters to participate in their health and wellbeing, and find the resources to thrive, before, during and after treatment.

It explores areas such as diet, exercise, relationships and managing stress, through free courses, one-to-one therapies, groups, a Treatment Support Clinic and national helpline.
