For a nation of cake lovers, it’s fair to say The Lullaby Trust have cooked up the best fundraiser yet, as the charity prepares for its ‘Bake it For Babies’ campaign.
Surely the tastiest initiative, The Lullaby Trust welcomes everyone to hold a bake sale from 6th - 12th of November to help raise some dough to save babies’ lives. It is super easy to get involved in; even a novice baker can get mixing for this great cause.
Everyone who signs up will receive a free fundraising pack full of all the ingredients they need to cook up the best of bake sales. And, even better, once the date and location is confirmed you’ll also receive a free Lullaby Trust t-shirt and cake toppers.
Mum and much-loved TV presenter Angelica Bell, is super excited to support the cause and has come on board as the campaign ambassador. She said ‘I absolutely love baking, especially with my children, so you’ll often find me trying out new recipes and adding my own special touch. The money raised from Bake it for Babies will help to save lives … what better excuse to eat more cake?!’
Let’s face it who wouldn’t enjoy some baked goodness? Plus, when it is to help raise money for such an important charity, which really is the icing on the cake! The Lullaby Trust funds vital research into the causes and prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, which sadly affects around 250 babies and toddlers in the UK every year. The fantastic team also supports bereaved families and raises awareness of safer sleep for babies.
The Lullaby Trust has been committed to this cause for over 45 years, during which they have played an integral role in reducing the number of babies who die by 85% since 1991. The charity receives no government funding, making events like this so very important.
So, what are you waiting for? Get set, #bakeitforbabies
About The Lullaby Trust
The Lullaby Trust provides specialist support for bereaved families, promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep and raises awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Working with the NHS we run a national health-visitor led service for bereaved parents, Care of Next Infant (CONI) programme, which supports families before and after the birth of their new baby. We are committed to supporting research to understand why babies die suddenly and unexpectedly and to find out more about how to reduce the risk of these tragic deaths. The Lullaby Trust also runs an information line for parents and professionals (0808 802 6869) and a dedicated line for bereaved families (0808 802 6868). Both are free to call from landlines and mobiles. Advice including factsheets and the latest research can be found at www.lullabytrust.org.uk. We campaign tirelessly, lobbying government to keep sudden infant death on the public health agenda.
