Maisie Mead has been inspiring people in her local community with her baking and fundraising skills and after holding her last bake sale, Maisie was really eager to do one again and this time she wanted to go bigger and better!
Maisie’s mum, Victoria, hired out their local community hall and started to make enquiries about providing a raffle. They visited lots of people and Maisie politely (and excitedly) told them about her bake sale. They were overwhelmed by the support they received and the incredible prizes that were donated.
Maisie planned all of her cakes by designing some herself and trawling through recipe books. By the weekend of the bake sale they had collected the prizes, given out leaflets, received their Help for Heroes ‘Shop in a Box’ and had to shirts made!
Maisie then began baking. She baked over 100 cupcakes and decorated them. She then helped her daddy to make some big cakes! By Sunday they were ready and Maisie helped to set up the hall and brought her little shop (in a box) with her! The bake sale was a huge success and so many local people came and supported. Maisie was so polite and caring to each person and raised an incredible £350!
Her next event is a little bit special as she has been approached by her local council and asked to take part in the Queen’s Birthday celebrations where they live. They have asked her to be the cake baker and sell her cakes, all to raise money for Help for Heroes as they have been so overwhelmed by what she is doing.
Victoria and James, Maisie’s parents, are so incredibly proud of her and we have to say that everyone at Help for Heroes is very proud of her as well!
Well done Maisie!
