Dust off your baking bowls and whip out your whisks – Alzheimer’s Society’s Cupcake Day is back on Thursday 14 June 2018!
Alzheimer’s Society, the UK’s leading dementia charity, is urging everyone to unite against dementia with their families, friends and colleagues, by baking or buying cupcakes to raise vital funds to make a difference to the lives of millions of people affected by dementia.
Dementia is set to be the 21st century’s biggest killer and affect 1 million by 2021. Each cupcake will help Alzheimer’s Society find a cure, improve care and offer help and understanding for people affected.
You can choose to celebrate on June 14 or mark the occasion another time in the month, there are no excuses not to get involved!
Various celebrities have shown their support for Cupcake Day including TV chef, Rosemary Shrager, who said: ‘Cupcake Day is a perfect opportunity to do a good turn and help others; dementia is little understood by many but is set to affect more and more of us. There’s surely no better way to do your bit for this great cause than by baking, buying and eating cakes!’
So, whether you’re a baking novice or a seasoned pro, you can unite against dementia by signing up for Cupcake Day: www.cupcakeday.org.uk
