Theo (aged 5) and Aoife McLaughlin (aged 7) from Pennyburn, Derry, pictured right get a helping hand from mum Grainne as they prepare for Concern Worldwide’s annual fundraiser ‘Bake A Difference’.
The charity is calling on keen bakers from across Northern Ireland, to host a bake sale during the month of October and donate the money raised to its childhood malnutrition programmes which provide life-saving treatment to children living in some of the world’s poorest countries.
Mariclare Gallagher, also from Derry, is the ‘Bake A Difference’ Co-coordinator. She is encouraging everyone who is interested to get registered, “This year we are going bigger than ever before and are encouraging everyone to turn the oven on and get baking to make a lasting difference to children suffering with severe malnutrition.
Whether it’s at home, or in the local community centre, this is a great fundraising event that everyone will enjoy, especially with yummy cakes on offer”.
Driven by the appalling fact that malnutrition is associated with 2.7 million child deaths annually, Concern has become a world leader in the treatment of child malnutrition. However, it urgently needs to increase the number of villages and communities we work with to help save children’s lives.
By taking part in Bake a Difference, you will be helping the charity to achieve this important goal.
