Amateur bakers are being urged to get baking to boost two Scottish charities at an event to be held in Linlithgow this month.

The West Lothian Baking Club is organising a bake-off competition to support breast cancer and meningitis charities.

It will be held at Caffe La Ronda in Linlithgow on the evening of Wednesday, June 25.

Amateur bakers have until June 20 to get their entry forms in. There are three categories – Victoria sponge, sweet scones and banana loaf. Entry costs £1 and all proceeds will go to charity.

Entry forms are available from the West Lothian Baking Club ( or Caffe La Ronda on Linlithgow’s High Street.

The event is not just for bakers but for cake lovers too. Tickets to the judging cost £3 – and include the chance to sample the cakes. Tickets from Caffe La Ronda.

Gillian Brown of West Lothian Baking Club said: “It’s a bit of fun to support two good causes.

‘‘You don’t need to be a serious baker and we have picked categories that most home bakers can make.

‘‘Even if you are not a baker you can still come along for the the tasting!”

Linda Martin from Caffe La Ronda said: “It will be great fun and raise money for two important charities.”

Margaret Meikle from the WRI in Ecclesmachan and Keri Zaczek from The BaKeri in Falkirk will judge the entries.
