I was all geared up to write about buns, cupcakes and fairycakes. Honestly. I even had photographs ready to go and then something stopped me in my tracks.

Namely the BBC programme for Sports Relief that aired on Wednesday and Thursday nights last week, called “Famous, Rich And Hungry”follow and then that got me thinking. What would happen if I had no food left in my house today?

Before anybody gets concerned I have food, but there are plenty of people in Irish society who don’t, as much as 10% apparently.
