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 

Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) is a day centre for adults with a range of disabilities. I have been going to the centre on a work placement scheme every Tuesday since September 2016. I have been engaging with the service users and members of staff from the centre completing tasks that have been set out for me. 
 
My work experience has been assisting Development Officer Sarah Lilly in the Marketing Office and has been really good for me as I’m learning new skills on the computer and have been building my confidence when meeting new people learning to communicate at the appropriate level. 
Cerebral Palsy Midlands and Wilson Stuart School work closely together on creating opportunities for development for young adults with disabilities. We have regular students attend our centre on their college work placements. Creating partnerships with schools such as Wilson Stuart means that we can work together and mutually fund and support projects that will be a huge benefit to the adults we work with.
