Midhurst cake sale to raise money for Help for Heroes

  • Sophie May-Lewis is organising a bake sale in Midhurst
  • Funds raised will go to Help for Heroes
  • Event will take place on April 11

WOODEN spoon-wielding volunteers are holding a colossal cake sale to raise money for the charity Help for Heroes.

Midhurst resident Sophie May Lewis is organising a Bake for Heroes event to fundraise for the charity which supports veterans 
and serving armed forces personnel.

Sophie May has recruited a troop of wooden-spoon-wielding and flour-throwing volunteers who are baking a variety of delicious cakes to offer at the sale.

From cupcakes to loaf cakes, victoria sponge and lemon drizzle by the slice, there will be a treat for everyone in return for a donation to the charity.

Sophie May said: “The men and women of our armed forces put their lives at risk for the protection of their country.

“That to me makes them all heroes.

“Help for Heroes is there to support these people.

When I cook at home, especially baking, I cook to share with family and friends.

“Sharing food is about love, caring, and respect, which is exactly what inspired me to organise this event.

“Thanks go to all the donors and supporters, 
including the South Downs National Park Authority, KerryType, The Granary Bakery, Austens Home Hardware, and the many bakers for their talents and time.”

Any leftover cakes will be donated to Chichester-based charity StonePillow, which supports homeless people across the area.

The cake sale will be on April 11 from 10am-2pm, at the Memorial Hall, South Downs Centre in North Street, Midhurst.
