A hole lot of meaning

This year National Doughnut day is celebrated on 5 June and there’s a “hole” lot of history behind it. According to Time Magazine, during the First World War, Women volunteering for the Salvation Army made doughnuts for soldiers serving overseas as a way to boost morale. National Doughnut Day was launched in 1938 by the Chicago Branch of the Salvation Army to raise funds for, and awareness of, their work. The good work of the Salvos continues today and the ‘donut’, as it is now known, continues to be a special sprinkle treat.
