Ilkley charity link-up for the Great Bake Off
11:01am Friday 18th October 2013 in Local news
Ilkley charity Outside the Box Cafe and new friendship website togetherfriends are joining forces to run a local Great Pink Bake Off in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
The event will be held at the Cafe on Bridge Lane between 10am and noon today, which is national Great Pink Bake Off Day and part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“The Great Pink Bake Off is a great way to raise funds for the life-saving work of Breakthrough Breast Cancer”, said Helen King, of togetherfriends.
“I wanted to do a local fundraising event and thought what better place to have it than at a local charity that is already involved with the local community and has a great reputation for lovely cakes and coffee?
“This is a great opportunity for people to sample home-made cakes and at the same time support a very worthwhile cause. We want lots of people to come along with their friends and family.”
Outside the Box Cafe is a community Cafe run by Ilkley Community Enterprise. The Cafe provides a wide range of support for adults and young people with learning disabilities and is a hub for local community groups.
