‘Bake a Difference’ with Maggie's this November for people with cancer

Date published: 15 October 2020

Local cancer charity Maggie’s Oldham is encouraging people to ‘bake a difference’ in November to support people with cancer. 

With this year’s Great British Bake Off well underway, what better time to grab your mixing bowl, line your baking tray and start your own challenge to raise some money for a fantastic cause.

There are plenty of ways you can do this; from hosting a virtual afternoon tea, raffling off some tasty treats, to playing guess the weight of the cake or even a drive by cake sale!

It’s completely free to sign up, and the fundraising pack contains a whole assortment of goodies including ideas and tools to get you started.

Participants can even join the ‘Bake a Difference’ Facebook group and share their own cake creations with the Maggie’s community. The group currently has 1,400 members and is growing every day. To join, simply head to facebook.com/groups/bakeadifference 

Trish Morgan, Centre Head at Maggie’s Oldham says’ “We want people to get creative! It’s not possible at the moment to host social events so we wanted participants to be able to connect with other people and fundraise at the same time.

"There’s a real buzz around the Facebook group so we are really looking forward to November.”

The start date is officially Friday 6th November but events and fundraising can be done at any time during the month. If you are interested, Maggie’s Oldham would love to hear from you.
