Briony brought a delicious cake for hospice patients and staff to enjoy and took time to visit patients and their families.

During March, the Hospice and Briony will be encouraging as many people as possible across the Bristol area to don their aprons and hold cake sales and tea parties for Ready, Steady, Bake to help raise vital funds for St Peter's Hospice.

Briony said: “I'm really looking forward to Ready, Steady, Bake. It’s nearly time for the people of Bristol to roll up their sleeves and get baking!

“Sign up to Ready, Steady, Bake today to be in with a chance to win a baking masterclass with me. Your support will help raise money to keep providing vital care for patients and their families in Bristol.”

Briony, who lives in Bristol with her family, enjoyed huge success on The Great British Bake Off last year and has since visited the Hospice twice to show her support for the Bristol charity.

Briony said: “It has been incredible visiting the Hospice today. It's an amazing building, but more so the people in it are incredible. So warm, so kind, and providing an invaluable service to people in and around Bristol. I'm absolutely thrilled to be supporting the Hospice.”

Bakers can visit or call 01275 391 400 to register their bake sale, coffee morning or tea party and receive a handy baking pack – which includes Briony’s delicious chocolate orange cake recipe!

St Peter’s Hospice Community Fundraiser Maddy Alton said: “We are thrilled to have Briony’s support for Ready, Steady, Bake this year. Everyone at the Hospice loved meeting her and thoroughly enjoyed her cake!

“We’re so excited to get all of Bristol baking and raising funds for Bristol’s only adult hospice.”
