Have Your Cake, Eat it & Raise Funds for Wildlife.

Monday 19th January

Have Your Cake, Eat it & Raise Funds for Wildlife.

It’s a rare offer for wildlife lovers to have a Sunday bake off to help save Nottingham’s Wildlife, but on Sunday, February 8th, 3:00pm – 5:30pm at The Ned Ludd pub, Friar Lane, Nottingham: they can do just that.


Cake Eaters Anonymous is a social group, meeting every few months to eat cake and raise money for charity. They charge a small fee for tickets and attendees bake their own cakes to bring, with left overs being sold to raise more for charity. So far they’ve raised nearly £5000 for various charities.


The proceeds from their Valentines themed event in February will all be donated to the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Champions of Sherwood Appeal after an attendee, Rachel Rutherford, put forward the conservation organisation. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has 67 reserves in the county of which the historic Sherwood Forest covers a large area.


“Ask anyone across the world what they associate with Nottinghamshire and it will be Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood, yet for too long not enough has been done to protect, enhance, and celebrate this historic landscape and its wildlife.” Erin McDaid, Head of Communications


Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, the county's largest locally based environmental charity, is committed to protecting the wildlife of Sherwood Forest and through its ambitious Sherwood Forest Restoration Fund the Trust is working with partners to restore and reconnect Sherwood's fragmented landscape.


Rachel Rutherford, who put forward the charity said: “It’s great to be baking, knowing we’ll all be helping towards restoring the heart of Sherwood Forest. I hope many will joins us, have a great time and raise lots of money for wildlife!”


During the event, there’s also a raffle with prizes donated from the club, supporters and local businesses including an organic hot stone massage from ‘The Apple Tree Organic Beauty & Wellbeing,’ Lowdham.


So, if you fancy your chances in a bake off; make a mean chocolate brownie or just want to share the love of cake, then please join them, taking your best Valentine themed baking.


Tickets are available at www.cakeeaters.co.uk. Bakers tickets are £3 and there is allocation for up to two ‘Bakers Guests’ who pay a higher ticket fee of £5 but who do not bring cake. There is a small online booking fee. Proceeds will go to the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trusts’ Champions of Sherwood campaign www.championsofsherwood.com.
