Bun bake off cancelled
Organisers of the annual Champion Easter Bun Bake Off have cancelled this year’s event because of Christchurch earthquake.
Goodman Fielder national field sales manager Paul Howley said the company was originally planning to hold the South Island judging session in Christchurch.
‘‘As a mark of respect to so many of our South Island competitors whose lives and businesses are now so tragically in a state of disarray and can no longer compete in the bake off, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.’’
Goodman Fielder would donate the Easter Bun Bake Off prize money towards the rebuilding of Christchurch, Mr Howley said. Goodman Fielder will notify bakers registered for the event of the decision.
