Weather presenter and charity volunteer Sian Welby has urged people to bake this summer to help provide life-changing care and support for disabled people.

Launching on 1 July, Give & Bake is about the public showcasing their baking skills to give their friends, family or work colleagues their cake creations in exchange for a donation to charity Leonard Cheshire Disability.

Donations from the Give & Bake initiative will fund a range of care services, including therapies enabling those involved in accidents to regain movement and benefit from physiotherapy at the charity.

Welby volunteers at the charity’s Randall Close service in Wandsworth, a day centre for people with physical disabilities, and is asking people to get involved in the cause.

“You don’t need to worry about your bakes having soggy bottoms, it’s just about having fun and raising loads of dough for Leonard Cheshire Disability,” Welby said.

“I’m delighted to support Give & Bake, and help make a positive difference to the lives of disabled people.”
