Families are being invited to bake this Easter, in aid of Help for Heroes
Words Aarzoo Snigdha
If you’re baking this Easter with your little ones anyway, why not consider selling the fruits of your labour, in aid of Help for Heroes?
Between 15th-30th April anyone who wants to can take part in a bakeathon in aid of the charity: simply sign up for a free fundraising pack through H4H to bake cupcakes, sponges, biscuits, flapjacks or whatever tasty treat they fancy, and sell them off to colleagues, family and friends.
Bake for Heroes is a charity that offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses while serving our country, and all the money raised by this campaign goes straight to help those most in need, and to their four Recovery Centres, which have been purpose-built and support around 4,000 people every year.
Supporter Lorraine Kelly commented: “Every time I sit down and talk to our brave men and women, they tell me how much it means to know the public is behind them and their families throughout their recovery. You could just get some friends together for a cup of tea, have a laugh and have a chat. You really will be helping to rebuild lives and continue the amazing work that Help for Heroes does.”
Bake sales can be as big or small as you want – it could be a tea and cake event at work or school, or simply an invitation to friends to come round for a slice of cake and a catch-up in return for a donation.
Everyone who registers has the chance to win a Kenwood kMix. Participants can also enter H4H’s ‘Best Looking Cake Competition’ for the chance to stay at the Bloomsbury Hotel in London, together with breakfast and afternoon tea.
