Radio presenters' 'bakes' immortalised on cake in support of Hospice

By Bob Malcolm

A Northern Irish radio presenter broadcast a live show and bake-off in Bloomfield Shopping Centre in aid of the Northern Ireland Hospice.

Carolyn Stewart (right) took part in the event that was part of the U105 Hospice Town Tour which saw presenters broadcasting live from different locations in Belfast and beyond from September 30 to October 5.

The broadcast took place from a customised Ulsterbus Tours coach and people from across North Down came to meet Carolyn and support the local charity.

During the show, Carolyn Stewart called on the support of the listeners and the general public to help raise funds for the rebuild of Northern Ireland Hospice's Inpatient Unit at Somerton House.

Lady Elizabeth Bloomfield also came along to speak on air and encourage support for the charity roadshow whilst Northern Ireland Hospice Chief Executive, Professor Dame Judith Hill and Hospice Community Nurse, Ursula spoke of the difference that the money raised will make. During the broadcast, a bake-off also took place with Pauline Carson of The Little Bake Shop baking an impressive cake featuring the U105 presenters.

Bangor woman Pauline provided the team with the cake because she bakes in her kitchen on a daily basis listening to U105.

She said the cake took her around six hours to create and that giving back to the people who get her through her work and helping out the Hospice were two perfect reasons to create her latest masterpiece.
