The idea is that you and your friends or colleagues take a ‘cake break’ and raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care.You can be as adventurous as you like – ever heard of extreme cake eating? Whatever you do you’ll be doing it in support of the charity that provides adult hospice care free of charge to those aged over 18 in Cornwall.

You can take your ‘cake break’ any time between now and the end of October and eat for a cause, as Rose Beattie, Fundraising Manager for Cornwall Hospice Care, explains;

“The idea is that you can eat cake with your friends or work colleagues guilt free while raising a few pounds for Cornwall Hospice Care and the compassionate support we offer patients with life limiting illnesses at our two hospices – Mount Edgcumbe in St Austell and St Julia’s in Hayle. There’s lots of things you can do. You can make cake and sell it to people around the office, have a tea party at home and ask people to make a donation towards the refreshments or perhaps make a cake and ask people to guess the weight in return for a few pennies.”

“You could of course go really mad and take on an extreme cake eating challenge and then share a picture of you doing it with us on Facebook or Twitter, along with a message about how much you raised by asking people to sponsor your mad cap idea. If you visit our social media sites you can already see some of my colleagues and their friends indulging in cake capers. On the other hand, you could give up your cake habit for a day, a week or a month and donate to us the money you would have spent.”
