The BIG Plant and Bake Sale

Host an event as part of The BIG Plant and Bake Sale on Saturday 15th May 2021 and make a real difference to the lives of disabled veterans.

Did you spend the last lockdown dabbling in a bit of gardening, or did you try baking your way through? Why not put these skills to a great use?

We are asking people all over the UK to take part in The BIG Plant and Bake Sale by hosting a sale of plants and/or baked goods on Saturday 15th May 2021 at a time to suit them.

We will provide advice on how to promote your event and add the public events on our website to help people find you on the day.

Host an event of any size, it all helps!

A few spare plants? You could take part by a leaving a few plants and an honesty/collection box outside for your neighbours. If you don’t have anywhere suitable, then maybe you know someone that does?

Make a couple of cakes. You could let a few friends/neighbours know you are taking part and take some orders for local delivery of their favourite sweet treat!

A bit of help from family and friends. Ask your friends and family to put their skills to good use and fill a table on a driveway at the best located house for people walking past. Why not sign up on behalf of a group or your team at work?

If you are involving your friends and colleagues:

  • Ask any green-fingered gardeners you know to pop a few extra seeds in now for plants to be ready for the 15th May.
  • Ask your culinary-skilled colleagues to put the date in their diary to make their favourite or most popular baked goods.

How it helps

The proceeds from the event will go to Care for Veterans, which provides care and rehabilitation to disabled veterans. The charity must raise £1.9 million each year to continue to provide its specialist care to veterans with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or a degenerative neurological condition, such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s.

As an independent provider, Care for Veterans can fill the gaps often found between healthcare and social services. Through its tailored approach to care, they help disabled veterans make good progress towards their rehabilitation goals and give them the very best quality of life.
