🧁 Why Bake for Bobath matters 🧁
Every March, we encourage bakers and cake lovers up and down the country to get involved with some tasty fundraising to help us make a difference to children across Wales who have cerebral palsy.
As a charity, we need to raise £1.8M to continue to provide our services to children and families across Wales. 80% of this total comes from donations, gifts in wills, retail and fundraising activities. A single 1 off therapy session costs us a minimum of £796 and all of our treatment is provided free of charge to our families.
Lexi, aged 4, has been attending our Therapy Centre since she was 6 months old and her mother, Natasha, saw Bake for Bobath as an excellent way to give something back to the charity that had helped her daughter.
“I wanted to give something back to Bobath Wales” said Natasha “I’m not fit enough to take part in marathons or climbing mountains but I’ve always loved to bake, and this was a fundraiser I was able to do!”
Last time Natasha, with the help of Lexi and the rest of her family and local community, raised an incredible £1,239.16 This year, she is determined to try and reach that total again.
“I am looking forward to raising as much as I possibly can for Bobath Wales. This year Lexi is going to be helping us sell the cakes she made herself.. .She is so very excited!”
Natasha hopes that others will take part in Bake for Bobath this year to help us raise as much money as possible throughout March.
“Taking part in Bake for Bobath is so easy to do. It doesn’t always have to be on a big scale. You can host an event amongst friends, family or work place. It helps spread the word about the amazing opportunities Bobath Wales provides to families and children across Wales, like my Lexi.”
