Make and Bake for Mencap

Knitting, tea AND cake – surely a match made in heaven, yes?! Well why not combine all 3 for a good cause

The Knitter magazine and Mencap are urging knitters everywhere to grab their knitting needles, bung on the kettle and put on a Make and Bake tea party, to help raise money for the learning disability charity Mencap. Not only that, but if you hold a Make and Bake event you could be in with the chance to win a fabulous prize  – 2 tickets for the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in October.

The tea parties are a simple, enjoyable way for knitters to raise money for a good cause ( as I said you’re off to a pretty good start with the tea and the cake ) so to help people get started, Mencap and The Knitter have put together a fundraising pack which is packed full of handy fundraising tips and recipes for delicious summer treats.

To enter the  competition all you need to do is take a picture from your Make and Bake event and send it into Mencap. The winning shot will be the picture that best captures the spirit of Make and Bake and the winner will be the proud owner of two crisp tickets to the Twisted Thread Knitting and Stitching Show 2010 at Alexandra Palace on 7th – 10th October 2010.

The closing date for the competition is Monday 20th September, so be sure to submit your entries to Mencap by then, you can submit up to five images per person and the sizes  shouldn’t exceed 2MB per image. Either email your pics to or post them to:
