Nor­folk’s bak­ing queen Kate Barmby has cooked up three new recipes to help county chil­dren’s char­ity Nel­son’s Jour­ney’s Pur­ple Pic­nic week The 2016 Great Bri­tish

Bake-Off con­tes­tant’s culi­nary cre­ations will fea­ture in the Pur­ple Pic­nic fund-rais­ing packs and she will also be vis­it­ing a pic­nic dur­ing the week to help the char­ity raise funds needed to con­tinue its work with be­reaved chil­dren and young peo­ple liv­ing in Nor­folk.

“Hav­ing met some of the young peo­ple that Nel­son’s Jour­ney has as­sisted I have be­come aware of how much they help chil­dren in Nor­folk to re­build their lives when the worst tragedy you can imag­ine has hap­pened. I have seen how what they do is not about for­get­ting or mov­ing on, it’s about hold­ing on to pre­cious mem­o­ries and sup­port­ing chil­dren to con­tinue to live rich and ful­fill­ing lives fol­low­ing the loss of some­one they love,” said Kate.

“Loss and grief is never some­thing easy to talk about and it’s even harder when young peo­ple are in­volved, this is why I think the Pur­ple Pic­nic is such a won­der­ful idea and why I am pleased to sup­port it.”

The Pur­ple Pic­nic will take place be­tween June 12 and 18 when in­di­vid­u­als, schools and busi­nesses will be able to hold their own Pur­ple Pic­nics to raise vi­tal funds.
