Berryless Bake Off, what will we do?!

Will Mary go? Will Paul go?

If Mel and Sue aren’t going, will anyone ever watch The Great British Bake Off ever again?

This year the Great British public have, amidst an outstanding series of the Bake Off, held their breath in anticipation as news of the show’s impending departure from the BBC has spread. I could almost hear the cries of ‘what will we do?!’ coming from living rooms across the country as the series progressed.

Whether you’re totally committed to Bake Off, or determined it’s never going to be the same again, why not hold your own? Chase away the nostalgia by whipping up cakes with friends, or while away the time until the next series with your own baking challenges. Who needs a Mary Berry when you’ve got friends and cake?!

We have some fantastic resources for budding bakers that will also allow you to make a difference for vulnerable young people.

Get baking

Well-being and mental health

Give: ‘Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out, as well as in. Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.’ -Five ways to well-being, New Economics Foundation

Get two for one. If you Bake and Brew for The Children's Society then the money you raise will support young people’s well-being and mental health.
