Pick the date then pick your bake!

Turn your cakes into counselling, your puddings into palliative care and your biscuits into bereavement support with St Luke’s Bake a Difference. What a tasty way to raise money for your local hospice!

We’re all fans of the Great British Bake Off so we think you’ll know how this works, however if you need a little guidance here is our recipe for success.

Who? Think about who you’ll be inviting to take part and attend your Bake a Difference; are you holding it at school or in the office; at your house or in the local community centre?

What? Bake a Difference means you can pick sweet or savoury bakes; will you go for pies or puddings? What else will you be doing? If you’re looking to award Star Baker to someone you’ll need a judge and a prize for the winner, and if you’re selling cakes think about how you can display prices and importantly, how people will get their tasty purchases home safely.

Where? Find a venue. It sounds simple, but if you’re displaying your bakes you’ll need plenty of tables and space for people to admire them.

When? Depending on where you’re holding your Bake a Difference will depend on the time that you choose to hold it. 11ses are great for a Friday, and afternoon tea is great for mid-week slumps!

How? Your bakes will make a difference, so think about creative ways you can raise money for St Luke’s.

  • Guess the weight of the star bake
  • A sweepstake for the person who will eat the most cake on the day!
  • If you’re teaming a brew with your cake break, you could guess how many coffee beans are in the jar
