In a bid to support children and families around the region, Hairy Biker, Si King is again backing the Bake4Bairns challenge.
Children North East are encouraging people from around the region to bake for good this winter. By baking your favourite dishes, and hosting a sale or making a donation, communities and local groups have the perfect excuse to get together over the festive season, whilst also changing the lives of children and young people.
Si is enthusiastic about the challenge, saying “I’ve been a long-time supporter of Children North East and I’m delighted to be involved in their Bake4Bairns Challenge. It’s important, particularly now in the environment we’re in, to get involved because small acts of kindness make a huge difference to families in need.”
Children North East has been in existence for over 130 years, helping children and families at home and in school. Support is available from pregnancy onwards, with projects for young people up to the age of 25.
Donations made from local people and communities support children and families in many different ways, with 4,544 babies, children and young people supported last year, through 65 different projects offering mental health support, help for families in crisis and warm, safe youth drop-ins.
Billie Jenkins, Communications and Fundraising Manager at Children North East shared, “Christmas is a moment for family, friends and of course, food. Baking offers a perfect opportunity to share a special moment whether you’re Head Baker or Chief Taster. By fundraising for babies, children and young people in our region you can bring that bit of extra magic to your baking, knowing your contribution will help fund life-changing support. We’re incredibly grateful to Si King for supporting the initiative.”
