If baking takes your (fondant) fancy, Wessex Cancer Trust would love you to host a Cakes4Cancer event this May and raise dough for local people living with cancer.
Launched outside St Mary’s Stadium by Wessex Cancer Trust volunteers this week and rolling out across the entire Wessex region between 6 and 12 May, Cakes4Cancer is a really simple way to come together with friends, family or colleagues and ‘bake’ a difference by asking for a donation in return for a cuppa and cake.
Charlotte von Sicard, Wessex Cancer Trust’s Community Manager, said:
‘We’re passionate about community at Wessex Cancer Trust, and believe everyone living with cancer should be able to get free and local emotional support whenever they need it. Cakes4Cancer is all about people coming together to enjoy something delicious for a great cause. Your event can be as big or small as you want. You could put on a coffee morning at work, host an afternoon tea with friends or invite neighbours to come along to a bake sale. Whether it’s faked or baked, every cake sold could help change someone’s life for the better. It really is a piece of cake.’
The charity has put together a free kit containing everything you need to host your own event, including a tablecloth, balloons, posters, cake toppers, game ideas and recipe cards. Sign up at www.wessexcancer.org.uk/forms/cakes4cancer-pack.
Wessex Cancer Trust is a charity dedicated to providing practical and emotional support to anyone living with cancer in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight, and in 2018 helped over 11,000 people throughout Wessex.
