Bun bake off can­celled

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

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.
