Great cake bake in memory of Bethany Mycroft

Our Great Cake Bake was held on Friday 25th November 2016 in memory of Bethany Mycroft who sadly passed away on the 22nd March 2015. We organised a full day cake and coffee charity event from 9am until 6pm to ensure that Bethany’s friends and family that wanted to attend were able to do so.

In order to promote our event and raise awareness we organised for vinyl banners to be printed and these were displayed outside of our event venue. Social media was used to promote our event with really positive feedback. The weekend before our cake and coffee day was spent delivering 1000 leaflets within the village that Bethany lived.

Many hours were spent on the run up to our event making a full range of home-made chutneys, preserves and fudges as well as material buntings to be used in conjunction with our CRY pull up banners, balloons and awareness raising leaflets as well as baking a wide variety of cakes.

On the day of our event an early start was had by all making our final preparations because our first supporters arrived at exactly 9am. As a family we were absolutely overwhelmed at the support that we received.

Throughout the cake and coffee day additional fundraising activities were also organised which included a Home Made Preserves Stall, Craft Stall, Bottle Tombola, Raffle, Guess the Teddy’s Name, Chocolate Explosion Raffle and Guess the Weight of a CRY themed cake.

After a very long and emotional day we raised a very impressive total of £3251.95.
