With Easter just around the corner, now’s a great time to roll up your sleeves and hatch a plan to organise an Easter cake sale or coffee morning in your home, workplace or community. Our Bake and Brew pack contains all the resources you need for a cracking baking event – including cake labels, posters and invitations.


Holding an Easter baking event of any shape and size is the perfect occasion to involve children and young people in baking to celebrate this special and reflective time of year. It’s also a good opportunity to engage your family, friends or colleagues with the difference that your baking can make to the lives of children supported by The Children’s Society so they can learn more about what we do and help spread awareness of our life-changing work.
