People in the Fenland area are being encouraged to raise funds to support disabled people in their local community – by eating cake.
It’s all part of disability charity Papworth Trust’s new fundraising appeal, care for cake. The Trust is looking for cake lovers to host or take part in their own cake themed fundraising event during National Cake Week (7-13 October 2013).
All proceeds raised through care for cake will help Papworth Trust to offer essential care and support to disabled people in the local community. For example, youth clubs for disabled young people to make new friends and have fun, and learning and leisure centres that support disabled people to learn important life and work skills.
“I’d like to encourage anyone who loves baking or eating cake to take part in care for cake,” said Papworth Trust’s Fundraising Manager Annette Angell.
“All proceeds you raise will go towards supporting our services, which provide essential care and support to older and disabled people. It’s a guilt free way to indulge in eating cake! By fundraising for Papworth Trust you will be helping us to care for more people in your local community.
“What kind of fundraising event you hold is completely up to you. It can be as silly, creative or simple as you like – anything from a cake sale, bake off, raffle, or even a vintage tea party.
“You will find all the information that you need to start organising your event on our website at www.papworth.org.uk/careforcake. And don’t forget to share the details of your event, along with any delicious recipes or baking tips, on our Facebook and Twitter pages.”
