Raise some dough for Sands
Following the excitement of this year's thrilling Bake Off, we have no doubt that this Christmas is the time to put on your apron, roll up your sleeves and bake for Sands.
Whether you enjoyed the mouth-watering successes of the star-bakers, the cringe-worthy disasters during the showstopper challenges, or simply the hilarious puns from Matt and Noel, now is the time to take inspiration from this year's bakers and Bake for Sands.
Whether it's Christmas pudding, festive cookies, or gingerbread houses, we know that friends and family will be queuing at the door to get a taste of your treats! Raise some dough for Sands and know that in doing so, you're supporting bereaved families access the care they need and deserve.
