A child protection welfare officer is set to compete in much-loved TV contest, the Great British Bake Off, when it returns to our screens on Wednesday.
Child protection officer
Sandy Docherty, a trained counsellor, handles child protection concerns and helps young people with emotional issues in a school near Bradford, where she lives.
She also volunteers at the school, running a cookery club where she teaches children from deprived backgrounds to bake on a budget.
The show will see her compete in a series of challenges each week to test her best signature bake, technical bake and show stopping masterpiece.
The 49-year-old told the BBC she had been baking since she was a little girl and it helped show her family, friends and colleagues that she cares about them.
Docherty said her cooking style “might not be glamorous but it’s tasty”.
The Great British Bake Off airs Wednesday at 8pm on BBC 1. Tweeting along? Let us know what you think @CommunityCare #GBBO.
