Register Now for Dough Raising Charity Campaign

Registration has opened for bakers, coffee shops, businesses, schools and anyone who wants to take part in this year’s National Doughnut Week (18-26 May 2024).


The annual charity week raises vital funds for The Children’s Trust which provides specialised rehabilitation, education, and community services for children with brain injury and neurodisability across the UK and their families. 


The week sees bakeries, cafés, coffee shops and restaurants across the UK raising money for The Children’s Trust through the sale of doughnuts – whether through the sale of their bestsellers or brand-new delicious creations.


Businesses and schools also take part in the week to run their own doughnut-inspired fundraisers.


It is completely free to take part and, once registered, participants can access free-to-download resources to help organise events and promote the week, while bakeries and cafés can request free point of sales kits.


Sponsored by CSM Ingredients, the charity week was launched in 1992 by Christopher Freeman, co-owner of Dunns Bakery in North London. Since then, Freeman has gone on to raise a total of £1,103,541 for charity, including £43,050 for The Children’s Trust last year.


“We are thrilled to be supported by National Doughnut Week again this year,” said Michelle Martin, Director of Fundraising and Communications at The Children’s Trust.


“The support of every baker, café, business, school, and customer makes a huge difference to the children and young people we support.


“Not only do they love getting involved in the week itself, but every penny raised helps us provide life-changing rehabilitation, care and education support to children with brain injury and neurodisability who need us most, and their families.”
