Run a Bake Sale

 Hosting a Bake Sale is a Recipe for Success

Whether it's cakes, cookies, muffins or croissants, baking something delicious for others to enjoy feels good. It’s even more rewarding when you’re doing it to raise money for a worthy cause like Joint Action.

How do I get started?

  • Pick a date and send invites out nice and early.
  • Ask guests to donate per item, or set a price to attend your bake sale.
  • Collect cash and/or set up a Facebook or  JustGiving page so your guests can donate online. You can also create and print off a QR code for your JustGiving page so guests straight to the page on their smartphones. Visit JustGiving for more information on how to do this.
  • Add a competitive element with a bake-off!
  • Remember: shop-bought treats are fine too if you're not a keen baker. And always list the ingredients of whatever you bake, for those with allergies/specific dietary requirements.
