Mersey Wave ‘Stand-up to cancer’ Bake-off evening


Mersey Wave Music is holding a fundraising event

 7pm Saturday 12th May 2018 in Hale Village Hall for Stand up to Cancer. 

This is a free event – no tickets required

If you would like to support the evening by entering the ‘Bake off’ we would love to hear from you.  

It’s all fun in aid of a great cause and here’s an idea of the evening.. 

How will it work… 

6pm onwards set up your bake. 

Doors open 7pm we will introduce the format of the evening to the audience and invite them to sample the ‘bakes.’ Each bake will have a collection box next to it and we will ask the audience to donate to the box of their favourite bakes. Your bakes will be raising money for a great cause! 

From 9pm the donations in each box will be counted and Star Baker 2018 will be the baker with the the most donations. (Announced around 9.30pm.) 

After this you are welcome to keep fundraising with any left over bakes for people to take away. 

The evening will come to a close around 11pm. 

We will provide tea and coffee refreshments throughout the night but everyone is welcome to bring their own drinks too. There will also be music performances, fun and games and karaoke during the evening.

We will be sure to let everyone know the total amount of money raised on the night which will be donated to Stand Up to Cancer. 

Who can enter?

Everyone is welcome to enter!  ‘Soggy bottom or no soggy bottom’ –  it’s all fun in aid of a great cause! 


When deciding what to make, think about what will make your bake stand out – will you give it an eye-catching name? Perhaps go for something savoury, or a light and healthy, or allergen free. Or how about a tried and tested recipe from the Bake Off Tent? 

Make sure you know your recipe inside out and get hold of all the ingredients you need. 

If you’ve got your heart set on a three tiered, jaw-dropping show stopper make sure to plan how you will get it to the Village Hall. You may need to do some last minute assembly once you arrive to avoid a commuting disaster. 

Let your family and friends know so they can support you and sample your creations on the night too! It is free entry for everyone with donations collected on the door all for Stand Up to Cancer.

Most importantly remember it’s all for a good cause. Thanks to your bakes we’ll be raising money to support a cause that saves lives  – so let’s go for it and have a great night!
