Help raise money for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity which supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness. We all love baking so why not bake and raise money for such a worthy cause at the same time.
There are an estimated 86,625* children in England with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. This number has trebled over the last 17 years and is rising. Thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis. Their Family Support Workers provide a lifeline to these families and children.
Life doesn’t always go to plan, but we won’t let that stop us. Bake on your own and donate, get together with others and plan a traditional bake sale (if you can), or go virtual and have a bake party on screen! There are so many ways you can have fun and raise vital funds to help families with a seriously ill child when they need it, now more than ever.
When you sign up you will get…
They have everything you need to make your #GreatRainbowBake a success. Get your (oven) mits on these handy resources by signing up today:
- Bake sale posters and social media icons
- Invitations and e-invites
- Cake labels
- Rainbow recipes
They will send you a downloadable pack to get started and other goodies over the coming weeks to help make your baking and fundraising a piece of cake.
If you are able to, you can hold a traditional bake sale within your community, school or workplace. Alternatively, you can promote and sell your bakes from your doorstep, your garden or even by delivery, involving neighbours, friends, and anyone you know who might be isolating. Charge a small donation per bake, or ask people to donate to your JustGiving page.
If you’ve rather go virtual and have become a dab hand at a zoom party, simply host a virtual bake party online with friends and family from all over the country, and even beyond. Set up a JustGiving page and then go live on social media or invite participants to a video call. Ask for donations to your page and hold competitions and games.
Or, simply bake at home for yourself or with your family and then donate what you can to show your support. Whether it’s mastering a new recipe, or perfecting one you already know, there’s nothing like pulling a home-baked cake out of the oven!
When the world seems a bit crazy it’s a great way to relax and unwind.
