HOLD a bake-off and help beat breast cancer this autumn.

Breakthrough Breast Cancer is once again calling on Dorset's bakers to use their flour power to help raise funds.

Participants gather friends, family and colleagues to share some home-baked treats in return for charity cash.

The Bake Off will be on October 17 but you can hold your own event at anytime during October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Georgia Bridgwood, head baker for the Breakthrough Bake Off, said: “We hope everybody is ready and raring to go for this year’s Breakthrough Bake Off.

“The delicious campaign first launched last year and was a huge success so we're hoping even more people will take part this year.

“It’s heart-breaking that 1,000 UK women die from breast cancer each month – this is why Breakthrough Breast Cancer's work is so vital.

“If we don’t act now, today, more and more families will face a future without the women they love, so please – for the women you love, sign up today and help us beat breast cancer for good.”
