Would you like to strum your ‘Air Guitar whilst eating Mcbusted’s Danny Jones Baked Protein Banana Bread? Or encourage your co-workers to have a nibble on ITVB’s The Only Way is Essex Hunk’s Mario Falcone’s Italian Hazelnut Biscotti’? Try a slice of a ‘Geordie’ favourite Stottie Cake curtesy of MTV star Charlotte Crosby and her nan? Or let loose with the girls and enjoy an ‘Easy Nutty Brownie’ a delicious treat loved by actress and original ITV1 Loose Woman Denise Welch. These are just a handful of celebrities who join our ‘VIB’s Very Important Bakers who have kindly donated their own personal recipes to show support for Great Autism Bake and are encouraging fundraisers to have a go and get busy in the kitchen and BAKE for this great cause.
The Great Autism Bake campaign kick started last week and we are encouraging schools, community groups, staff teams and anyone with an interest in baking to put their baking skills to the test by baking and selling cakes and biscuits to help fund the great work carried out by Autism East Midlands. Further information can be found on our website www.autismeastmidlands.org.uk
Autism is a complex development condition that affects around 1% of the population. This means that most people will know someone who is affected by autism, either within their own family or social circle. Every year, Autism East Midlands helps many hundreds of individuals and families affected by autism across the region and the Great Autism Bake is a great way to support our work.

Fund raising for the Great Autism Bake

Here’s how fundraising could make a vital difference to Autism East Midlands

• £50 could purchase art and craft supplies for children accessing our services

• £100 could fund a specialist therapist to run a session for children affected by autism (eg. music and movement intensive interaction therapy, yoga, aromatherapy)

• £200 could fund a social activity or trip for up to 5 families to enable them to enjoy being out-and-about in a non-judgemental environment with people who understand their needs

• £500 could fund the purchase of smartphone technology, such as Brain in Hand, to help people with autism achieve greater levels of independence and manage their anxiety levels.
