The sixth CRY Great Cake Bake took place on Friday 24th November 2017, as part of Raising Awareness Week. We would like to thank everybody who took part in the CRY Great Cake Bake and for helping to make the event such a success.
Money is still coming in but we are delighted to say that we have raised over £31,000! We had over 115 people sign up for Great Cake Bake information packs which has made this year the most successful Great Cake Bake since the introduction of the event.
We have received some great stories about people’s events and seen some lovely photos of all the hard work that went into making them a success – see below. If you would like to add your Cake Bake photos or story to this page, please email email@example.com.
