Bakers are being called on to bake the world a better place this October and help raise vital funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
“St Lawrence C of E primary school in Alton are already signed up to bake cakes and other sweet treats to support pupil Sammy, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy.”
The charity’s Bake a Difference runs between the 8th and 14th October 2018 and sees the nation’s cupcake queens and master bakers hosting ‘Bake Off’-style events and cake sales in schools, offices and clubs.
Money raised from the event will go towards helping scientists find treatments and cures, as well as providing essential support to the 70,000 people living with muscle-wasting conditions in the UK. Muscle-wasting conditions cause muscles to weaken and waste over time, leading to increasingly severe disability. Some conditions affect the heart muscle and vital breathing muscles too, cutting lives short.
The feel-good fundraiser Bake a Difference was started three years ago by the de Laszlo family from Hampshire, after son Sammy was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Now 9, Sammy is asking you to join him and his family to bake muffins, cookies, cupcakes or really show off your skills with a tiered jaw-dropper.
