Bake for BACKUP



Bake our day and get your mixing bowls and whisks at the ready.

Selling cakes is a fantastic way for people to raise money for a good cause as well as being a fun community event, so why not give it a go?

Take part in Bake for Backup by holding a bake sale at work, in your home or community hall these are all great places to host a bake sale.

Promote your Bake Sale by using the poster in your pack and decorate your stall on the day with our fun Backup bunting. Use our colourful labels to let everyone know what you have baked.

We recommend you share the ingredients of your bake to alert consumers of any food allergens

Spread the word through text, email or social media.  Ask your friends, family or colleagues to take part. The more people you can get involved, the merrier.

Top Tip: Letting people know why our cause means so much to you can really motivate people to purchase and to donate.

If you raise £100 or over from your bake sale, we will present you with a unique Backup bear to recognise your exceptional efforts and support of our charity.

Ready, Set, Bake!

What We Do!

BACKUP provide multiple services across Bolton to young people aged 16-25 years who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness. Read here about all the supported accommodation which includes emergency housing, temporary accommodation, short and medium stay supported housing. Also the non accommodation based support work that focusses on mental health, employment support and much more.

Young people can live in more than one Backup service as they make progress and develop more independence prior to moving on completely. The different services are designed to meet various levels and ranges of needs.

Our Events

Every year Backup delivers multiple events for fundraising. Each one is designed to raise awareness and much needed money to support young people who are homeless. Annually we have our core events; Gala Ball, Golf Day and Ladies Lunch. We also have other events that are different each year so that we can have a wider appeal to all.
