Bake and Make a Difference: How to Get Involved in Charity Awareness Month

Charity awareness month is in full swing, and one of the most fun ways to get involved is by baking and making a cuppa. Whether you’re a master baker or a novice, there are many ways to support your favourite causes. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Make It

There’s nothing quite like a freshly baked cake to bring people together. If you’re feeling adventurous, try out a new recipe from a trusted source like BBC Good Food. We recommend their Tray Bake collection, which includes crowd-pleasers like lemon drizzle cake and chocolate brownies. Don’t worry if you’re not a Bake Off star – with a little practice and patience, anyone can whip up a delicious treat.

Fake It

If you’re short on time or baking skills, don’t despair. Many cafes and bakeries, like our very own Plaza Cafe, offer whole cakes and slices for sale. It’s a great way to treat your friends and family while supporting a good cause. Plus, no one has to know that you didn’t make it yourself! Set the Scene

If you’re hosting a tea party at home, why not go all out with decorations? Visit your local party store or supermarket and stock up on tablecloths, napkins, and festive bunting. Ask your friends and family to bring their favourite cake trays and cutting knives, and set up a collection box for donations. It’s a great way to show your support while having fun with your loved ones.

Show Your Support

If you’re not a fan of hosting, there are plenty of other ways to get involved. Visit the websites of your favourite charities, to learn about local events in your area. Whether it’s a sponsored walk, a bake sale, or a concert, there are many opportunities to make a difference and raise awareness.

Baking and making a cuppa may seem like a small gesture, but it can have a big impact on those in need. So why not get involved in charity awareness month and make a difference today?
