This year we held our Great Cake Bake over two days on Friday 24th & Saturday 25th November 2017 from 9am – 6pm. In order to promote our event and raise awareness we organised vinyl banners to be printed and these were displayed outside of our cake bake venue on the weeks leading up to our event.
Our event was publicised with Bethany’s Memorial Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter. We also managed to enlist the support of two local radio stations and local media and the weekend before our Great Cake Bake event was spent hand delivering over 1000 leaflets within Bethany’s local and neighbouring villages.
Over the two days we had very early starts and welcomed our first visitors very early. Throughout our Great Cake Bake event we held many different fundraising activities. We held cake and coffee sales and our supporters had a wide variety of cakes and some savoury options to choose from too. We also held a hamper raffle, a bespoke dolls house prize draw, home made pickles and preserves, hand made crafts, bottle tombola, guess the teddy bears name, chocolate explosion draw and guess the weight of our CRY themed cake.
After a busy few weeks on the run up, and a very successful event, we raised a tremendous amount of £4209.59 – surpassing our totals from previous years and all of which will be donated to CRY in memory of Bethany Mycroft.
Please see attached a selection of photos, which captures the theme of our CRY Great Cake Bake event.
