Nancy Birtwhistle, the winner of the Great British Bake Off 2014, was joined by 50 lucky cake lovers at a fundraising event held by Housing Options Scotland (HOS) at Cromlix House Hotel in Dunblane…

The Scottish Charity, which recently celebrated 20 years of service, offers free housing advice to veterans and helps hundreds of clients a year.

Moira Bayne, CEO of HOS, was delighted with the success of the sold-out event. “On behalf of everyone at Housing Options Scotland, I would like to thank Nancy for coming to our afternoon tea today and being our special guest.

“Thanks to her presence, we have managed to raise £1,000. This significant money will be extremely useful in allowing us to help more people who face housing challenges”.

When asking Nancy why she accepted HOS’s invitation, the 2014 Great British Bake Off winner said: “I had a lovely time in beautiful Dunblane and really enjoyed hearing about the work of Housing Options Scotland. Thanks to the Bake Off fans who made me feel so welcome.”
