Here at BakerLou, we are always willing to help with charity work and we recently heard about a new nationwide initiative called Free Cakes For Kids. Their mission is simple - to provide a special cake for a child on their birthday as some families can find this a difficult task - whether it's a money issue or difficult family circumstances. Every child deserves a birthday cake!
The scheme matches up families with volunteers in their local area (BakerLou have joined our nearest scheme Free Cakes for Kids UK - Braintree as a volunteer baker. You can find their facebook page here) You don't have to be a baker to help, the scheme will also need volunteers for delivering cakes, spreading the word, referring families who would benefit from the scheme, plus fundraising or asking businesses to donate ingredients or cake boards and boxes.
