If baking tickles your (fondant) fancy, Wessex Cancer Trust, would love you to host a Cakes4Cancer event this May and raise dough for local people living with cancer. 


Rolling out across the entire Wessex region between 6 and 12 May, Cakes4Cancer is a really simple way to come together with friends, family or colleagues and ‘bake’ a difference by asking for a donation in return for a cuppa and cake.  


Cakes4Cancer is all about people coming together to enjoy something delicious for a great cause.  Your event can be as big or small as you want. You could put on a coffee morning at work, host an afternoon tea with friends or invite neighbours to come along to a bake sale. Whether it’s faked or baked, every cake sold could help change someone’s life for the better. It really is a piece of cake.”


The charity has put together a free kit containing everything you need to host your own event, including a tablecloth, balloons, posters, cake toppers, game ideas and recipe cards. Sign up at
