Get ready to Bake a Difference for the RUH!

The Forever Friends Appeal are asking people across Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire to pop on their aprons and get baking this October to raise vital funds for Bath’s Royal United Hospital.

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.

Ted’s Big Bake Off asks individuals, schools, businesses and community organisations 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 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.

Events & Community Officer for The Forever Friends Appeal, Emily Lynch explains: Ted’s Big Bake Off replaces Ted’s Big Day Out! as our brand new annual fundraising week for the Royal United Hospital. As the RUH provides a service to over 500,000 patients and their families across Bath, Wiltshire, Somerset and even further afield, we hope that as many people as possible will get baking in October to support the Hospital and the local community. Raising money couldn’t be more delicious! Once again we are very grateful to all staff at Mogers Drewett Solicitors for sponsoring Ted’s Big Bake Off.”

Baking is a fun and simple way to raise money and whip up some delicious treats that everyone can enjoy! All bakers will be able to choose their own recipe for success and bake to fundraise for a ward or department close to their heart, or the current RUH Cancer Care Campaign – raising £8.5 million towards a pioneering new Cancer Centre. Whether its Victoria sponges, cupcakes, flapjacks or delicious breads; all tasty treats made will help transform care for patient and their families at the Royal United Hospital.

Ted’s Big Bake Off is proudly sponsored by Mogers Drewett Solicitors, who have supported the Appeal’s old annual fundraising day “Ted’s Big Day Out!” for the past four years. As part of their involvement Mogers Drewett run a schools and nurseries competition to get children of all ages involved and baking for the RUH. Schools and nurseries will receive more information about this after registration.
