THE Great Bramley Bake-off in aid of Rotherham Hospice will be held in memory of a 31-year-old who died from a tumour.

Friends have set a target of raising £25,000 in honour of Michael Graves, of Laughton, who twice battled cancer.

The bake-off event will take place at the King Henry pub in Bramley on Saturday from noon to 5pm.

Plasterer Michael, who was married to Gemma, was cared for at the hospice following several courses of chemotherapy before his death in April.

His best friend Asheem Dongaonkar (29) said: “We want to raise £25,000 over five years to give thanks for the care the hospice gave to Michael.

“The bake-off winner will get £50 of vouchers for the pub and a Bramley Master Baker trophy.

“We have raised £4,524.12 towards our goal since May and there is a Facebook group called Michael Graves Charity HQ for people to keep up to date.”

The bake-off event will also include a bouncy castle, face-painting, stalls, music, tombola and other activities.
