As I’m sure you’re all aware, I love any initiative that encourages people to take an interest in food, especially if it involves them cooking or baking.
As the son of a home economics teaching mum and a farming father, I grew up understanding that cooking with fresh ingredients is not only key to good health, but that it’s fun, social and often a great form of escape from the stresses of life. That’s one of the reasons I’m right behind the MS Society’s annual fundraiser, Cake Break.
What is it? Well, every year, on (or around) Friday May 3rd eager hosts all over the country gather together their friends, family and/or colleagues for a feast of cupcakes, pastries, pies and cookies.
Cake Break parties are a tasty opportunity for people to enjoy home cooking, catch up with mates and most importantly contribute much needed funds in one of the donation boxes nestled amongst the treats. The events take place in homes, schools and community halls up and down the UK.
Multiple Sclerosis is often misunderstood and the awareness around the condition is quite thin on the ground. Until Jack Osbourne ‘came out’ as living with MS last year, many people had never heard of it. MS is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK.
