 Cake Donations Will Not be Accepted in Hospital
Royston Runners in Royston, Herts, who organize a 10 kilometer run every year require that participants donate cakes as entry fee. These cakes are then auctioned off and the money is donated to the Royston Hospital. In variably some cakes are also donated to the hospital, but not this year.

It seems the hospital has banned cake donations over concerns that they may not have been made in a hygienic manner.

"They said it was because of health and safety concerns but we've been doing this for 24 years - I just don't understand why suddenly our cakes aren't safe," says Maurice Hill, chairman of Royston Runners. "I could understand if the hospital was objecting to our home-made cakes but we auctioned most of those off as they raise more money."

Following a furor, the hospital has now reversed its decision. However the Royston Runners donated 150 pounds to the hospital and an equal amount to Richard Cox House care home. The remaining cakes were also donated to the latter.
