Join the NWLST Great Legal Bake - 12th - 16th February


In mid-winter, surely it is time to start looking forward to treating yourself to some sweet treats or savoury snacks come February 12th! So far the North West Legal Support Trust has over 120 organisations registered nationally to #bakeforjustice and we would love it if you could join them.

There are only a few days left to go so get signing up! Would you like to get involved?

All you need to do is ask your colleagues to dust off their best family recipes over the coming weeks and get baking for a very good cause. Also, you can let people know that they can tuck in to some amazing baked goods, safe in the knowledge they’ll be helping provide free legal advice in the process!

Last year, the Bake raised over £33,000 nationally, and we hope to beat that total this year. With your help we can #raisesomedough for justice!

There are two main ways you and your colleagues can take part:

• Bake a cake, batch of biscuits or something savoury and bring them to the bake sale

• Buy some of these treats to have with your morning coffee or afternoon tea and make a generous donation.  All the money raised during the week will go towards supporting the valuable work of law centres and legal advice agencies.

All of the regional Trusts deliver much needed funds to these organisations through targeted grants rounds, whilst sharing good practice to help agencies become more sustainable for the long term. If you would like to join in you can register here.

After we receive your application form we will send you all the information you will need, including all the necessary materials to hold a successful bake sale!

Best wishes
