Staff at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) are getting ready to rise to a challenge this autumn.

To celebrate the new series of the hit television series Great British Bake Off (GBBO), budding bakers at the trust are being invited to take part in their very own cupcake bake off.

Top Norfolk chef Richard Hughes, who works with Serco at NNUH to improve the quality of hospital food, will be judging the contest, with the cakes sold off at the end of the event and proceeds going to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity.

And the chef director of The Assembly House Norwich and owner of the Richard Hughes Cookery School has donated a first prize of afternoon tea for four at the Assembly House.

Each baker will present five of their finest cupcakes on October 26. Also judging will be former GBBO contestent Kate Barmby, a nurse at the trust.
