When I’m baking in Britain someone somewhere else, a long way away, will benefit. That makes me feel connected to them; it gives me a stake in their wellbeing even though we’ll probably never meet.”The fundraising event takes place in October and encourages bakers of all ages to fundraise by baking cakes and selling them in the week running up to Anti-Slavery Day on 18th October. Tearfund is encouraging community groups including churches, schools and workplaces to sign up for this year’s Big Bake at www.tearfund.org/getbaking.Last year’s Big Bake raised £70,000 to help protect children from trafficking, disease and disaster.
