Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys has teamed up with the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials to launch the Brooke Burghley Bake Off – a baking contest challenging people to come up with their best carrot cake recipe.
All you have to do to enter is bake your best carrot cake, take a picture and send in your recipe to the Brooke website.
Three finalists will travel to Burghley Park in Stamford on 3 September 2016 to take part in the grand finale. The competition will be judged by a surprise celebrity guest and the winner will go away with tickets to Burghley in 2017, as well as a selection of other prizes including Pol Roger champagne.
The finalists and other selected participants will have their carrot cake recipes featured in the Brooke Burghley Bake Off recipe book, alongside tips and recipes provided by ardent supporters of the charity including Joanna Lumley, Alastair Stewart and Rick Stein.
If eating cake – rather than baking it – is more your thing, why not show your support by hosting a picnic? To go alongside the Bake Off challenge, The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials are also supporting Brooke’s High Teas for Gee Gees campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness and funds for working horses, donkeys and mules by asking people to throw a picnic while at Burghley Horse Trials.
Elizabeth Inman, Event Director at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials said: “We are delighted to be supporting this fun and innovative campaign. The Brooke does incredible work improving the lives of equines in developing counties and educating their owners.
“We’re hoping that all the horse lovers who visit Burghley this September will consider combining their visit with fundraising for the Brooke, either by hosting a picnic tea for family and friends, or by taking part in our baking competition.”
