Introducing our 4th 21 for 21 Fundraiser – Shelley! From Friday 2nd April Shelley (our CEO) will start baking 21 cakes in 21 days  – yummy!  Shelley will bake 1 cake every day in exchange for a donation and bakes can be frozen too so you can collect when you like! If you’d like a cake please fill in the form below and click here to donate!

As part of Home-Start Manchester’s 21 for 21 fundraising campaign I’m going to attempt to bake 21 cakes in 21 days. So, from Good Friday, I will bake 1 cake every day. You can make a kind donation and wish me well, or make a kind donation in exchange for one of my bakes! Now, this is no mean feat. As my husband would tell you, whilst I find baking therapeutic, I ain’t Mary Berry. There may well be some disasters as well as some successes! BUT, I’m embarking on this challenge for a cause that is so close to my heart.

For the last 15 years I’ve had the absolute privilege to work for Home-Start, a charity which aims to support parents to give their children the best start in life. Our team is held up by an incredible group of local parent volunteers who offer weekly friendship and support to families with young children. This invaluable support gives parents, who are often on their knees, a reminder that they are not alone, that they have within them everything their child needs and that, with our support, their children can thrive in early life.
