Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust are holding a Green Heart Bake & Craft Off on Sunday 14th February to raise funds for the Cockington Green Heart Appeal.

Members of the public are being asked to make or bake something inspired by Cockington’s Green Heart. Entries can be baked, knitted, moulded, crocheted, painted, glued or created using any other creative method.

After judging is complete, all the will be sold with money raised going to the Green Heart Appeal, a campaign launched to help fund restoration work that is desperately needed in Cockington Country Park. The Green Heart project has so far been jointly funded and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Viridor, Viridor Credits, Torbay Council and Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, but there is still a last push for the remaining funds to be raised by the Torbay community.

“We know there are many talented crafters and bakers out there,” says Hannah Worthington, Green Heart Project Officer. “We hope the competition will give people the chance to show off their creativity as well as help raise funds for one of Torbay’s important green spaces.”

The bake and craft off is open to all, with the competition divided into 3 categories: ‘General’ is open to all, ‘Team Effort’ for families with children under 8 years old and ‘Junior’ for ages 8 to 13 years old. Entrants must bring their creations to the Resources Room at Cockington Court between 11am and 1pm on Sunday 14th February. Judging will take place shortly after.

Come along to Cockington Court 11am to 3.30pm on Sunday 14th February to view the competition entries – you could go away with a prize winning cake or unique piece of handcrafted genius. Refreshments available.
