Bake-Offs Lottie Bedlow rallies behind her childhood school in their Cupcake Fundraising Campaign in aid of Oxford Hospitals Charity.
Cranford House, a small school in the South Oxfordshire, are combining their love for cupcakes and a charitable cause to help raise funds to support NHS frontline workers across Oxfordshire. They are therefore challenging students while at home during the national lockdown to bake and sell cupcakes to their families in aid of Oxford Hospitals.
Unbeknownst to the school, Great British Bake-Off contestant Lottie and former student had taken notice and has pledged to help with the school’s fundraising efforts by raffling off 10 signed copies of the Bake-Off Cookbook on the school’s JustGiving page. Cranford House is now appealing to the wider public to get behind the #CupcakeCampaign to help reach their fundraising target of £1500.
Community is such an important part of Cranford House culture and now, more than ever, it’s important to come together to help those who need it most. In fact, it’s through this community that the idea took hold: inspired by the brilliant work of one of their Reception pupils: Alice.
Over the weekend, Alice set to work baking trays of cupcakes and selling them to raise money for the NHS. Amazed and touched by Alice’s actions, Cranford House decided her idea should be supported and carried out by the whole school.
