Start to plan your event

  • Ask permission. Are you a student, parent or teacher? Anyone can organise a school bake sale, but please ask for the school's permission first.
  • Logistics. Pick the date, time and location of your bake sale. Popular school bake sale places have been the school hall and the playground.
  • Recruit bakers. Ask for volunteer bakers to bake and donate to the sale. The more bakers, the more bakes, and all the more funds raised to help support vulnerable babies.
  • Get others involved. Think about the help you will need on the day. You might need help to set up the event, serve the customers and/or to count the money raised at the end of the day.
  • Spread the word. Give everyone plenty of notice and make sure everyone knows when and where to buy your baked goods. Use our Bliss invite poster to spread the word.

Boost your funds raised

There are so many ways to raise money at your Bake for Bliss event in addition to selling yummy treats.
  • Set up a Just Giving page - This way, parents, teachers and students can still donate to the fundraiser even if they can't make it on the day. Create your Just Giving page.
  • Hold a teacher Bake-Off competition - Teachers bake and students judge! Charge a small fee for taking part. You could even organise a sweepstake to guess which teacher will be the star baker.
  • Encourage some healthy competition - Each class could do their own bake event. Which bake sale can raise the most money? Offer a prize to the winning team.
  • Put the 'fun' in fundraising - Offer fun games such as 'guess the weight of the cake' or 'guess how many sweets are in the jar'. Pay to play and the winner takes home the cake or jar of sweets.
  • Hold a non-uniform day - Why not make that bake sale even more exciting. Students donate £1 or £2 to ditch the uniform for the day.
