Tasty way to raise charity dough

Cake lovers are being invited to host a traditional bake sale to raise money for childhood cancer sufferers.

Children With Cancer UK is calling on people to cook up tasty treats throughout May as part of its Bake Club Month.

More than 3,500 youngsters are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. Children With Cancer UK, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, funds research into the causes, prevention and treatment of the disease and works to protect young lives through essential welfare and campaigning programmes, including support for hospices.

The Bake Club is designed to be a fun and simple way to raise money. Organisers hope that everyone from beginner bakers to pastry chefs will get involved in the workplace or in their community to help children with cancer.
