Hanover Housing Association in partnership with the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) are encouraging older people to put on their aprons and rise to the occasion by taking part in the Big Cake Bake, during Deaf Awareness Week (7-13 May).
The national fundraising campaign aims to raise £10,000 to enable NDCS to continue supporting deaf children and their families.
Among the events taking place Hanover has arranged nine cake baking events in nine separate locations for residents to showcase their culinary creations and raise funds for the charity.
Retirement Housing Manager Cath Cooil said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for residents to support a worthy cause, which is very close to their hearts.”
Helen Lerwill, NDCS Head of Corporate, Community and Events, said: “We are very grateful to Hanover residents for taking part in our Big Cake Bake and supporting our work to break down the barriers that prevent deaf children from achieving.
“Every penny helps, and our £10,000 target will help us to deliver weekends for families whose child has just been diagnosed as deaf. These weekends are a lifeline for many parents, providing them with emotional support and much-needed information about their child’s deafness.”
