Big Bake 2017

We knead your help!

Thank you for rising to the challenge and taking part in The Big Bake, in support of St Oswald’s Hospice!


Inspired by our love of celebration, summer and all things cake related, we invite you to cook up a storm by hosting your own bake sale, coffee morning or afternoon tea for friends and family, or at your place of work.

Why not get creative in the kitchen to help us raise some dough! 

Our Big Bake week is:Rolling Pin

We invite you to dust off your rolling pin, bring out your show stoppers and mix some tasty treats, during the week  commencing 17th July. So whether you are part of a community group, school, office or an individual wanting to host something for friends and family, why not get creative in the kitchen and help us raise some dough. Your support will help us to care for adults, young people, children and their families from across the North East. 

In 2016 we celebrated #30yearsofcare at St Oswald’s Hospice, seeing supporters across the North East hold a host of Big Birthday Bakes and we hope this year will be bigger, better and tastier.

Here on our website, you'll find a fundraising pack and a bowlful of resources you can download such as invites, posters, certificates and price tags.

We can also help with fundraising ideas to ensure your event rises to the occasion.

    Ewan And Adam Baking 2016

    Meet Ewan and Adam! 

    Ewan, 17, from South Tyneside, has been coming to our Children’s Hospice for the past six

    years for short breaks. Ewan loves to bake with the staff while he is here, his favourite is lemon drizzle cake!


    Adam Giles, Care Support Worker in our Children’s Hospice, tells us:

    “I really enjoy baking and try to invent flavoured cakes that haven’t been made before, usually with sweets that are popular with young people.


    “We love baking in the Children’s Hospice! I tend to bake cakes and sometimes pizzas but it all depends on what the children or young adults are in the mood for that day. I encourage promoting independent choices with the flavour of cakes and what we choose to bake.


    “The children and young adults really love baking and get a lot out of joining in. The sensory smells of using different ingredients, watching Chemistry change things, new taste experiences (try our skittles cake!) but it’s all about having fun and making new memories (as well as getting to eat lots of cake!)”
