A STRING of KFC eateries will open their doors to customers looking to learn the Colonel's secret recipe this month.

Takeaways across Dorset are to allow members of the public to bread and fry their own KFC chicken on Saturday, March 30.

After all that hard work, each attendee will be rewarded with the chance to devour their own burger creation, along with a piece of original recipe chicken, fries, drink and a side.

All those who buy tickets will also be given a KFC branded apron and hat.

KFC branches in Winton, Weymouth, Christchurch and Ferndown are among those taking part.

Booking is essential. For more information, or to buy a ticket, visit kfc.seetickets.com

All profits will go to the KFC Foundation, which supports local charities which are passionate about developing and nurturing young people.
