Frequently asked questions about Cupcake Day
What is Cupcake Day?
On Thursday 18 June, people across the UK will get together to raise money for people affected by dementia and we knead all the help we can get to make this year bigger and batter than ever.
Cupcake Day is for the bakers, the fakers, the buyers and the bringers. No matter how you host your day all that matters is you have some tasty treats (home-made or shop-bought, we’re not fussed!) and raise some ‘dough’.
When is Cupcake Day?
Our official day is on 18 June. If you can’t make this date, dough-nut worry – you can take part on whatever day works for you!
Can I host my Cupcake Day on a different date?
Where is my fundraising kit?
Our Cupcake Day 2020 fundraising kits are fresh out of the oven and we’re adding the finishing sprinkles. You kit will be ready to fly through your letterbox in Spring.
If you have requested an electronic fundraising kit, it should arrive in your inbox within a week. If you still haven’t received your kit after this time, please email the Cupcake Day team at [email protected] and we’ll send another out to you right away.
I’m under 16, can I still take part?
To organise a Cupcake Day you must be over 16 years of age. If you are under 16 years we ask that you organise your Cupcake Day with a responsible adult (who can request a kit and pay in donations).
Are there any games I can play on my Cupcake Day?
How do I pay in the money I’ve raised?
You can pay in the donations from your day online. Or, if you’d prefer, you can pay by card over the phone by calling 0330 333 0804, or by sending a cheque to:
Freepost Plus RTXL-AYHH-RYRL
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 cakes on social media?
We’d love to see photos of your preparations and Cupcake Days! Please do share them with us on social media by using #CupcakeDay and tagging @alzheimerssoc on Twitter and Instagram or @alzheimerssocietyuk on Facebook.
