Grand Baking Day

Crafty Cooks would love to invite you to join them in creating the first ever Grand Baking Day; a multi-generational baking day, raising much needed funds to help prevent loneliness amongst the older generation. Crafty Cooks is a national franchise running preschool cookery classes, where children as young as two years of age come along and make delicious things to eat. In the classes we often see grandparents bringing along their grandchildren and having the best time together. Even those less able can be a big part of the experience and share their knowledge with the younger generation. It’s a great bonding activity- enriching, educational and a wonderful way to pass the time together.

Our vision is to see care homes, child based establishments, and Mums and Dads opening their doors and welcoming in the older and younger generations to share a Grand Baking Day, whilst making money for a very worthy cause. The premise of the day, held at any time during the week commencing 13th June, is a national multi-generational bake off , spending some time being involved in each other’s lives. To have fun, to bond, to create memories. We provide the invitations, the posters, the bunting and the recipe cards; you provide the facilities and the experience! If you don’t have a grandparent to involve, why not invite a neighbour?

We will be supporting Contact the Elderly in England, Wales and Scotland and Age NI in Northern Ireland, both of these charities work to help and prevent loneliness amongst the elderly. We suggest a donation per family of £5 – you then take costs from this.

Please help us to make this day the success it should be, to know that this year a few extra people will be happy and enjoying old age and to give grandparents all over the UK a chance to have a wonderful time with their grandchildren! For further details please e-mail anna@craftycooks.co.uk and do keep checking back as we will be updating very soon!
