Bake for Brake!

CakesWhy not Bake for Brake? 

Making a load of cup cakes is the simplest thing in the world, but everyone loves them, particularly if they know their extra calorie intake is all in a good cause! 

Charge £1 for every cup cake sold at work, or 50p for every cake sold to school friends. Sell them in your local park. Sell them at your local community event. Sell them to your neighbours. Sell them to your granny!

Set yourself a target! Can you sell 500 buns and make £500 for Brake? It's amazing how quickly a tray of 12 buns can disappear into 12 mouths, so get baking for Brake! Make a sign for your bun tray, saying the "Bake for Brake challenge". Why not hand out home-made leaflets for everyone who buys a bun, telling them about Brake and suggesting they 'eat their yummy bun fast but drive slow'!

Read what Helen did!  Our fundraiser, Helen, has been Baking for Brake now for the past few years and has raised over £2,000 for us.    Helen says “I became aware of Brake after losing my brother to a road crash almost 10 years ago.   I decided I wanted to help raise funds for Brake, so I began baking and asking for donations for cakes/quiches at work.  The idea was successful and soon, along with homemade cakes I started buying snacks (chocolate bars, crisps and drinks etc) and asking for donations towards the charity.  I have a poster next to the Snack Table which shows how much money has been raised.   It's a worthwhile cause and for very little input there’s a great outcome for Brake.”
