As part of National Cupcake Week (NCW), British Baker teamed up with partner charity CLIC Sargent to host a cupcake making session.
Taking place at Paul’s House in London, one of CLIC Sargent’s Home From Home locations, children and their families supported by the charity made decorated vanilla cupcakes with Sabrina Collins, owner of Lady Jayne’s Cakes, and winner of the Best Themed Cupcake category at the National Cupcake Championships.
One of the families being helped by CLIC Sargent are Sarah and Kelvin Crouch and their four children. Their one-year old son Kane is currently undergoing six weeks of intensive chemotheraphy before undergoing surgery, at a London hospital. They live in Brighton, meaning keeping the family together would have been impossible without the help of the charity.
Sarah Crouch, said: “It has been a godsend to us; the kids can come here and we can try and be the best family we can be. I don’t know what we would have done without this place.”
Added Kelvin: “It’s like an extra life. There’s lots of playrooms for the kids here, and it’s a break for us.”
