Show your love throughout February and March for families of seriously-ill children by taking part in our ‘Bake it with Love’ campaign!
Over the months of February and March, the Queen’s Award winning charity, Sebastian’s Action Trust is asking you to simply ‘Bake It with Love’, where your efforts will help bring a smile to the faces of seriously-ill children and their families.
The Trust is encouraging everybody to raise money through bake sales and bake-offs, by holding these in your workplace, at home, in a school or with friends. Martha Collison, from the BBC’s Great British Bake Off recently baked with children the charity supports to launch the campaign. Martha said, “It was such a pleasure to visit the charity's outreach Hub in Slough to bake with children and families they support. The hub was such a welcoming, fun environment and is clearly doing wonderful things for the children they support. The campaign is something I truly support and I would encourage as many people as possible to bake for their loved ones and raise money for a fantastic cause”.
The charity’s campaign has also had local support from Bagshot based cake shop, Sweet As Sugar. The cake shop has kindly donated a spectacular Frozen cake, worth £400 for the person/ group that raised the most amount of money for the Trust.
The Trust’s Chief Development Officer, Caroline Holton said, “This is an exciting campaign and one which we hope the community will get right behind. I encourage you to hold your very own Bake it with Love event with your friends and family and help us raise much needed funds for seriously-ill and life-limited children in our community”.
To help you organise your very own Bake it with Love event, please download a fundraising pack including top tips for holding a bake sale and invites to advertise your very own event. Please do share your event images via the charity’s Facebook page and pictures of your creations by tweeting us @SebsActionTrust using the #bakeitwithlove.
All funds raised will help Sebastian’s Action Trust continue to walk alongside families of seriously-ill children from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
