Kat and Kirsty all set for another successful Cake Break

Last year Kat Garner and Kirsty Brady, from the Wirral, held their first ever Cake Break and raised a massive £3,682.50. Their plans for 2014 are already well under-way.

Both Kat and Kirsty have had their own experiences of MS; Kat’s father was diagnosed with MS in 1997, then 12 years later her mother was also diagnosed. Kirsty was diagnosed herself  in 2010, so the MS Society is a charity close to both their hearts.

Kat said “As soon as I saw the advert for Cake Break I immediately wanted to get involved, it looked like such a fun way to raise money for the MS Society.”

The key to their success

Kat and Kirsty held their Cake Break in a local church hall and plan to do the same again this year. As well as selling lots of scrumptious cakes, they also held both a football shirt auction and a raffle, using some amazing prizes donated from local businesses.

“Cake Break was so much fun! We had lots of “meetings” before the event, tasting the cakes. And there was such an amazing buzz on the day. We really felt the feel good factor, knowing that we had done something to help those in need and the funds we had raised will go towards research which will help those with MS to have a better future.”

We asked the ladies what tips they would give to anyone who is thinking about doing their own Cake Break event in 2014.

“Get as many people on board as possible to make the event as successful as possible.  They can help spread the word and come up with other great ideas… I don’t think we would have done so well without telling all our friends and family about the event through Facebook!”

We’re looking forward to hearing how their event goes this year!
