Please donate

Whether it's cakes, cookies, muffins or croissants, baking something delicious for others to enjoy feels good. It’s even more rewarding when you’re doing it to raise money for Age UK’s work supporting older people. Why not hold a bake sale in your office or local community?

How do I get started?

  • Pick a date and send invites out nice and early. Use our downloadable poster to advertise your event.
  • Ask guests to donate per item, or set a price to attend your bake sale.
  • Collect cash and/or set up a JustGiving page so your guests can donate online. You can also create and print off a QR code for your JustGiving page so guests straight to the page on their smart phones. Visit JustGiving for more information on how to do this.
  • Add a competitive element with a bake off or blind taste test.
  • Remember: shop-bought treats are fine too if you're not a keen baker. And always list the ingredients of whatever you bake, for those with allergies/specific dietary requirements.
