Are you ready and armed with your spatula and cake tins?

The Great Bake is an exciting challenge for all home bakers, where all you need to do is bake, sell your tasty treats and donate the money to LIBRA!

Funds raised through the Great Bake will help us provide the Haematology Department at King’s College Hospital with funds that are urgently required for state-of-the-art medical equipment. We are the only charity in the world that solely campaigns for this specialist department. Our support ensures that the haematology team can develop new lifesaving treatments for patients with blood cancers and disorders.

Here are our top 5 tips for a successful bake sale:

  1. Consider a theme for your event. A theme based around the time of year, national occasion or sporting event will help to make it memorable!
  2. Choose a venue that is easy for people to find. Whether it’s at home, in the workplace or at a larger venue, ensure its accessible and has the correct insurance in place.
  3. Set a date and fundraising target. You can hold your Great Bake event anytime during the year, so give yourself plenty of time to prepare and decide on a target for money raised.
  4. Pricing your bakes. Make sure your guests can easily see the cost of your items by labelling them clearly. Requesting cash payments will help you to keep track of how much you make.
  5. Have fun and eat cake! As important as this event is for raising vital funds for LIBRA, make sure you enjoy the day and spread the word on how others can take part.
