Diverse Abilities is aiming to recruit as many individuals, companies, clubs and schools to take part, have fun and raise as much money as possible to ensure the 250,000 hours of support across its range of vital services continue to run.

Beccy Payne, Corporate and Community Fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, said: “Over the past two years, The Great Dorset Bake Sale initiative has raised over £8,000 and we are hoping that the 2014 event with beat this! We are aiming to get over one hundred bake sales taking place in Dorset and hope the local community get on board for a very worthy cause.”

The event will see Paul demonstrate recipes, reveal secrets of being a TV chef and take the audience on a journey through his life in baking.

Caroline Pope from Supply Shack said: “Supply Shack is a Social Enterprise offering business supplies with the aim to feeding profits back into the community. As part of this we’ve been working with Diverse Abilities Plus and are now more than happy to support the Great Dorset Bake Sale in May. Having visited some of the services run by the charity it’s clear that they offer a vital resource for families but desperately need continued input and this event seems a great way of cooking up some help.”
