Savour Something Sweet on Cupcake Day 2018
People who have a sweet tooth are sure to love Cupcake Day 2018. This special event takes place on June 14th and is held each year to raise money to help the fight against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Whether you like to bake or simply show your support by purchasing cupcakes to munch, this is a great way to help people in your local community.
The fight against dementia is an important one as this is the most significant cause of death among people who live in England and Wales. Unfortunately, no cure for dementia has been discovered as yet and research continues, while the large number of people who suffer from this disease means that the cost of care is very high.
Fortunately, Cupcake Day provides a significant way of helping as in 2017 £1,000,000 was raised in England on this day alone. A large part of the money raised went to opening special dementia cafes where people who suffer from the disease have a welcoming place to gather with their carers and support each other while enjoying a little light refreshment.
A large number of cafes, churches and other types of institutions are set to take part in Cupcake Day 2018. There are hundreds of easy to follow cupcake recipes to choose from and this is the perfect opportunity to get busy in the kitchen for a good cause. If baking is not your forte, make sure you grab a special fundraising kit and help to raise much needed funds and awareness.
