This year’s Craft Bakers’ Week (September 29-October 5) will see Pocklington’s Bakery hold a range of special events while raising money for this year’s official charity, the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.
Craft Bakers’ Week is organised on behalf of the hundreds of craft bakers across the country, and aims to encourage support for bakeries from local communities.
Pocklington’s Bakery was established in 1924 and has this year celebrated its 90th anniversary, with Hollie and Christopher Pocklington taking the family business into its fourth generation.
The popular bakery continues to operate from their bakehouse in Withern and currently employ 67 people including bakers, drivers, cleaners, retail and office staff.
Pocklington’s Bakery has a lot planned for Craft Baker’s Week this year - including the launch of a top secret new product - and they will be selling speciality breads throughout the week.
They will also be unveiling a new wedding cake design, which is the result of a competition held last month, and won by 16-year-old Louth resident Danielle Jones.
Pocklington’s will also be raising money for Make-A-Wish Foundation UK by holding a raffle, with all proceeds going to the charity.
They will also be selling cupcakes with the Make-A-Wish logo on top, with a percentage from every sale being donated.
There will also be collection buckets in the shop, based in Louth Market Place, to allow anybody to donate their loose change.
Raffle tickets will be available to buy from Pocklington’s Bakery throughout Craft Bakers’ Week at a cost of 50p each.
