Make and Bake with Mencap

I was contacted recently by the charity Mencap regarding a fab fundraising initiative they have set up.
Make with Me and Bake with Me are all about getting together, getting crafty, having fun and raising awareness and funds for Mencap and in particular to highlight their newly launched 'Stand by Me' campaign that aims to put a stop to disability hate crime.

So how can you get involved?

 Mencap want you to get
together with your friends, your mums and tots group or playgroup, your kids school or youth club, and get creative - learn a new craft, pass on your crafting skills to others make new friends and have some fun! They have even got some celebrity crafters to help their campaign including Barley Massey of Fabrications who has created some fabulous Gingerbread People Bunting. If baking is more your thing you can try Something for the Weekend's resident chef Simon Rimmer's Cake Pop recipe or the Queen of Cakes, Jane Asher's mouthwatering Gingerbread Men recipe. All these are available to download for free from the Make with Me website.

Why not make some gingerbread men and sell them to raise money for Mencap? Or arrange a craft session and ask for a donation to take part. There are lots of ideas in the Fundraising Pack download

Mencap are launching their 'Stand by Me' campaign to coincide with Learning Disability Week 20th-26th June and they are asking you to 'Make a Me' to help raise awareness. Whether you chose to make or bake - upload your a picture of your 'Me' to the facebook fanpages and be entered into a great competition to win some fab prizes.

Whatever you do remember it's all about having fun whilst helping a really worthwhile cause. Let's get making and baking!!
