Once again we're asking budding bakers across the UK to butter up their colleagues, friends and classmates by holding a bake sale to raise vital dough during the charity’s Bake it Better week (19-25 October 2015).
Amateur bakers of all abilities can take part. Whether baking it or faking it, every sale will make a huge difference to thousands of very ill children from across the UK.
Last year Bake it Better raised over £100,000 towards the Great Ormond Street Hospital’s redevelopment programme and, now in its fifth year, the 2015 appeal aims to raise more than £200,000 from bake sales across the UK.
The money raised will enable the hospital to provide world-class care for young patients and their families by contributing to the rebuilding of the hospital, supporting ground-breaking research, funding up-to-date equipment and providing accommodation and other support services for children and their families.
To help make every bake sale stand out, the charity has put together a super fundraising kit, jam-packed full of materials including bunting, cake toppers, posters alongside celebrity and patient recipes, baking themed games and top tips to ensure every bake sale is a sweet success.
For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.bakeitbetter.org
Everyone can get involved in Bake it Better – you can organise a bake sale at your local club, school or with colleagues at your workplace. Every cupcake or cookie sold will help us make a real difference for Great Ormond Street Hospital’s seriously ill patients and their families from across the UK.
