“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Organising the Oxfordshire Bake Off is a wonderful thing because everyday I see how kind and supportive people are. Today was no different. I awoke to an inbox of generous offers, from providing free tea bags, to kitting us out with vintage crockery. I am so thankful for their kindness, and it always leaves me grinning ear to ear!
Whether it’s a donating prize, sponsorship or taking part in the competition, every bit of support will help us to raise funds for our charities. Charities that will then make amazing, kind and life-changing acts with those funds.
For Helen & Douglas house their amazing work is in giving time and expertise to care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions and support for their families. Their two hospice houses offer specialist symptom and pain management, medically-supported short breaks and end-of-life care, as well as counselling and practical support for the whole family.
For Oxfam, their amazing work is in working towards a world free or poverty and suffering. This year we’re supporting a project helping pastoral children in Niger get the education they deserve.
Thank you for everyone who has shown their own kindness in supporting the event so far, and to everyone that will.
Please take the time to read about the charities we’re supporting this year. They’re a lot fab!
