Ready, get set… Bake for Nature!

Thursday 6 April 2017

This April, unleash your inner star baker and do your bit for nature by making something delicious for friends, family or colleagues.

The RSPB - the UK's largest wildlife conservation charity - is launching a new campaign to help raise money to protect wildlife and wild places: Bake for Nature.

Taking part in Bake for Nature is easy. Just choose a date on or around 28 April, bake a batch of something tasty, then bring your bakes to work or invite friends and family for a wildlife-inspired afternoon tea. The RSPB recommends asking for £1 per portion, proceeds from which will go towards the RSPB's crucial work in saving nature.

Go online to sign up for your free pack, which includes bake-themed bunting, a sugar shaker template, cash box plus plenty of ideas and inspiration. And you can check out what others are making at rspb.org.uk/bakefornature.

Tim McCann, Community Team Manager at RSPB NI, says: "We want to see gingerbread birdhouses, long-tailed tit lollipop cakes, hedgehog or bird-shaped biscuits - anything you can rustle up. And we'd love to see what you make, so share your bakes - the fails and the successes - using #bakefornature.

"This is a really nice way to do something great for nature while indulging your sweet tooth. So roll up your sleeves and join us as we help save nature - one cake at a time."

All money raised will go towards the RSPB's work helping wildlife and wild places in your local area.
