Frequently asked questions about Bake for dementia

When is Bake for dementia?

Bake for dementia is happening during 25th April - 1st and you can take part on whatever day works for you! 

Where is my fundraising kit?

Our Bake for dementia fundraising kits are fresh out of the oven and we’re adding the finishing sprinkles. Your kit will be ready to fly through your letterbox in Spring.

I’m under 16, can I still take part?

To organise your Bake for dementia event you must be over 16 years of age. If you are under 16 years we ask that you organise your event with a responsible adult (who can request a kit and pay in donations).

Can I get any extra items from my fundraising kit?

You may be able to find a printable version of what you’re looking for in our Bake for dementia resources. If you’re looking for any decorative items for your day, such as paper plates, napkins, cake flags and aprons, you can purchase them from our online shop.

Are there any games I can play?

Absolutely! We have plenty of games and activities available to download and print on our Bake for dementia resources

How do I pay in the money I’ve raised?

You can pay in the donations from your day on our website. Or, if you’d prefer, you can pay by card over the phone by calling 0300 222 5770, or by sending a cheque to:

Bake for dementia
Alzheimer’s Society

If you’re sending a cheque, please include the donation form at the bottom of the letter in your pack.

Can I share photos of my bakes on social media?

We’d love to see photos of your bakes! Please do share them with us on social media by using #BakeForDementia and tagging @alzheimerssoc on Twitter and Instagram or @alzheimerssocietyuk on Facebook.

What about Coronavirus?

The health and safety of you, your friends and your family is the most important thing right now. If you're taking part please ensure you are following guidance set by the Government around social distancing and self-isolation at the time of your event.

This is especially important if you care for someone living with dementia or other vulnerable people.

Always read the latest government advice on coronavirus.
