This week is National Doughnut Week. An event which is aimed at raising money for The Children’s Trust. From the 7th to the 15th of May businesses, including bakers, coffee shops, and offices around the UK are taking part and selling doughnuts to raise funds for the charity. The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children who suffer brain injuries. Every year, approximately 40,000 children will suffer a brain-related injury. Although some have good prognoses, there are thousands who have long-term difficulties. This type of situation is where the Children’s Trust supports the children and their families.
Doughnuts are a global favourite which originated in the Netherlands, where they serve a sweet dish called “Olykoek”. These were balls of dough shaped like walnuts that were fried in oil. When they became popular, bakers found that they cooked more evenly with a hole in the middle. Although exact figures aren’t available, Krispy Kreme on their own is said to sell around 60 million doughnuts a year in the UK.
