Appeal receives Fabulous support for baking event!

This year, TLC’s Fabulous Baker Brothers: Bite of Britain Tom and Henry Herbert, are encouraging individuals, businesses, schools and nurseries to sign up and support The Forever Friends Appeal’s brand new fundraising event for Bath’s Royal United Hospital: “Ted’s Big Bake Off”.

Ted’s Big Bake Off, proudly sponsored by Mogers Drewett Solicitors, is the brand new annual fundraising week for the Appeal. Taking place between Monday 5th and Friday 9th October 2015, the event asks individuals and organisations across Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire to pre-heat their ovens, prepare their mixing bowls and get baking to support the RUH Cancer Care Campaign or a ward or department of their choice at the Hospital. Whether it’s holding a coffee morning, bake sale or hosting a bake off competition at work, school or with friends and family, you can help raise some serious dough to help transform care for patients and their families.

Tom and Henry, who have their own show on TLC and two books to their name, are fifth generation bakers who are also famed for fronting Hobbs House Bakery, their popular family run business and cooking school in Chipping Sodbury.

Tom Herbert, Operations Director at Hobbs House Bakery says “I know how you can have your cake and eat it! Bake something delicious for Ted’s Big Bake Off AND make it guilt free by raising money”

Events & Community Officer for the Appeal, Emily Lynch, says: “We are absolutely thrilled that Tom and Henry are supporting Ted’s Big Bake Off, our brand new annual fundraising week for the RUH.”

Tom, the “bodacious baker” of Hobbs House Bakery with a “zeal for imaginative design” will also be visiting staff, visitors and patients at the Royal United Hospital on Friday 9th October to officially open the Appeal’s closing activity for the fundraising week: the “RUH Big Bake Sale”.

Emily continues, “As part of Ted’s Big Bake Off week, on Friday 9th October Forever Friends Appeal staff and volunteers will be holding the “RUH Big Bake Sale” which is our attempt to hold the biggest cake sale the RUH has ever seen! We are delighted to announce that Tom will be visiting the RUH on the day to officially open the cake sale and to also meet staff, volunteers, patients and visitors at the hospital. All profits from the cake sale will go towards our RUH Cancer Care Campaign which is raising £8.5 million towards the build of an exceptional new Cancer Centre at the RUH”
