Bake sales come in all shapes and sizes

Posted by: Help For Heroes

Fundraising needn’t be a daunting experience, especially when its powered by cake! The beauty of bake sales is that they come in all shapes and sizes, so you can be sure your event can be tailored to suit your personality perfectly; from tea parties to team high teas – check out our tasty ideas to earn your baking stripes…

For a small-scale event, hosting a bake sale at home offers a fabulous excuse to get friends and family together. Alternatively, if you fancy getting the wider community involved, why not host a bake sale for neighbours, book club pals or even everyone on your social media?

If you’re looking for an opportunity to bring your work team together, hosting a Bake for Heroes event at work will certainly get more people involved. Remember to check with your employer to be sure it doesn’t clash with any other events. You never know, your boss may be a secret Mary Berry and whip up their own delicious contribution.

And it’s not just for grownups - you can even hold an event in your local school. Show your support during Armed Forces Week and Bake for Heroes by selling cakes, buns or biscuits during break or lunchtime.

Once you’ve decided on your event location don’t forget to let everyone know when your bake sale will be and what it’s for - check out our downloadable posters and invitations to help spread the word.
