Cornwall Hospice Care are delighted to announce the Cornish charity’s fourth annual Great Cornish Cake Bake Cake Day. This year the event falls on Friday 4th May and has prompted organisers to introduce a Stars Wars theme.

Judy Lawton is a Cornwall Hospice Care Community Fundraiser; “We think it’s very fitting that it’s our 4th Great Cornish Cake Bake Day given that we are holding it on Friday May 4th this year. Invitations have been sent to all previous participants of this simply cake-tastic day and we’d like everyone with a love of cake to join in. Our fundraising team for instance, will be partnering with our furniture shop in Holmbush, St Austell to hold a Star Wars themed cake bake on the day.”


“We’re really excited about this year’s cake bake day. Whilst we normally hold it on May 6th which is National No Diet day, we decided to hold it this year on Friday May 4th and introduce an inter-galactic theme. You might be lucky to buy an Obi-Bun Kenobi or a Princess Chelsea Bun or even glimpse Darth Vader or a Storm Trooper in our the shop on the day.”

Judy adds; “We are lucky that so many people, groups, WI’s, shops and businesses from Bude to St Just take part. Last year they collectively raised nearly £8,000, all from baking and eating cake at events large and small!”

As Judy says, “just let us know you’re interested and we’ll support you so you can join us on this inter-galactic cake bake journey.”
