Cake Bake Sale raises money and awareness for charity supporting adults with disabilities! 
Hive students from Wilson Stuart School undertaking work placements at registered charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands cooked up a great fundraiser raising £37.74. 
 
Students Megan Cairns and Seraj Kyani started their work placement in September and were given a task to organiser a fundraiser and support the Development Office function for the charity. Their idea was to organise a cake bake sale at The Hive and encourage as many of their friends to either bake for them or come and enjoy eating the baked cakes at their event. Working hard on designing posters and advertising the event around the College, the event was a remarkable success raising a total of £37.74. 
 
Development Officer for Cerebral Palsy Midlands Sarah Lilly said ‘That this was a great first fundraiser event and has given both Megan and Seraj the full learning experience for creating and marketing events. I believe they could build on this kind of event and develop it further in the future. The most successful cakes that sold were those that were handmade, so next time they need to source more friends who can help bake to support their event.” 

Thank you Megan & Seraj 

 
Can you CPM with its fundraising by donating a box of chocolates or biscuits, a bottle of wine or a soft cuddly toy? Do you have unwanted gift sets? 
 
CPM are asking for help with their Christmas Fayre fundraiser and asking for donations to support their raffle and tombola. We welcome any level of support. 
 
All the money raised will help give our clients a Christmas Dinner. Some of our disabled aduts at our centre live in isolation and some are alone on Christmas Day so our aim is to give everyone a fabulous Christmas Meal. Once more as staff, we are aiming to offer a waitress service ensuring our citizens have everything they need and all the right care in place.

Mondelez Community Champions Michael Huggins and Steve Davies are happy to report that they have now completed The Ride Across Britain, that is to say, they have cycled 1000 miles all the way from Lands End Cornwall up to John O'Groats in Scotland over 9 days. 
 
Michael said "We are both very thankful for all the support you have given us. It's been an amazing experience one we will never forget." 
 
The pair set out to raise £1,000 for each of their seven magnificent charities, with Cerebral Palsy Midlands being one of them. They have so far raised an amazing £1,115.29 for our charity alone and we are so thankful for their support. 
 
Their fundraising doesn't end here as their giving pages will remain open until December 2017 and you can still donate here. Steve is also running in the Birmingham marathon so every support we can give him is very much needed. 
 
Care support workers, Alicia Allgood and Carla Baldwin, have set up a fundraising page to help raise money for Cerebral Palsy Midlands. In December this year, they set off travelling to go visiting six countires and whe they get to New Zealand, they will challenge themselves to an almighty SkyDive challenge!  
 
Both ladies have been working in care for many years and have a lot of experience working with clients with cerebral palsy. They are passionate about the work they do and about those they continue to support. Alicia said; "I have realised working along side those with cerebral palsy, that they are some of the happiest most cheerful people we know and that deep down they are exactly like us, just less able bodied which doesn't stop them from enjoying life to the fullest!" 
 
Money raised from their charity Sky Dive will support CPM's 'Access for All' campaign which encourages our clients to get out into the community, support them on day trips, shopping trips, GP appointments and cinema visits, just to name a few. The "Access for All" campaign primary aims to combat isolation for adults with cerebral palsy and who have substantial and critical needs. For some of the clients we work with, they have opportunities to get out in to the community, this is right at the heart of what we do. 
 
Their challenge will not take place until next year in March or April 2018, however, they have set up their fundraising page to maximise their efforts and get as much support as they possibly can. You can click on the link and find out more about their challenge here
