Cavell Nurses Trust is urging nursing professionals to raise their whisks and ‘bake a difference’ for colleagues suffering hardship this May.
Last year, around 3,300 nursing professionals sought help from Cavell Nurses’ Trust, the charity providing life-changing support for nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants facing severe difficulties.
On average, that’s more than 60 every week, or 9 nursing professionals searching for vital help, every day. Many face worries of financial insecurity, mental health problems, homelessness and situations of domestic abuse.
Cavell Nurses’ Trust is calling on the nursing community across the UK to come together in May to celebrate International Day of the Midwife (5th May) and International Nurses’ Day (12th May) by hosting bake sales throughout the week to raise vital funds for nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants in hardship.
Victoria Lewis, Fundraising Manager at Cavell Nurses’ Trust, says:
“#RaiseYourWhisks will provide an opportunity for teams to come together, celebrate the wonderful nursing profession, show off baking skills, build and renew friendships over cake and tea, and raise vital income to ensure that no nurse, midwife or healthcare assistant has to face hardship alone”.
Cavell Nurses’ Trust has teamed up with Dr. Oetker who are providing recipes and baking goodies to be included in free fundraising kits. Anyone wishing to order a kit and to pledge to ‘bake a difference’ can get their free official Raise Your Whisks fundraising kit here.
The #RaiseYourWhisks official partners are Healthcare at Home and Dr. Oetker.
