It’s a well known fact that the humble doughnut is a far greater invention than sliced bread, coming as it does in a huge variety of flavours and with an endless number of delicious toppings. And, glazing over the fact that there's almost never a bad time to enjoy a doughnut, there really is no excuse for not eating one over the coming days - July 10th to 18th is National Doughnut Week!
Established to raise funds for The Children's Trust, the UK's leading charity for children with brain injuries, bakeries from across the UK take part in National Doughnut Week every year, donating a portion of the funds they raise throughout the week to the charity.
