Celebrating Pro Bono Week

The sweetest fundraiser of the year returns

Could you raise dough to support free frontline services that help some of society’s most vulnerable people? Are sweet treats up your street or does savoury make you rave-ery?

Whether it’s blondies or brownies, millefeuilles or petits fours, Black Forest gateau or Swiss roll, millionaire’s shortbread or pound cake, taking part is easy as pie. And if sweet stuff doesn’t melt your butter why not make samosas, sausage rolls, or savoury scones?

You can access the bake pack full of useful stuff like posters, labels and stickers below. All you need to do is register through the button.

So grab a group of friends or colleagues and organise a bake sale in your office, chambers, court or university and sell your tasty treats.

Are you a crummy baker, but you’d still like to take part? Why not see if a local bakery might donate some cupcakes?

If you are not able to take part during the official bake week, you are still welcome to sign up to bake on a date of your choice!

This year we’re partnering with the London Legal Support Trust who are facilitating the Great Legal Bake to enable bakers from across the country to get involved and raise money for access to justice in their local communities.

Celebrating Pro Bono Week

The Great Legal Bake is part of Pro Bono Week. There will be a photo competition during the week, judged by Toby Brown – Chair of the Pro Bono Week Committee and Barrister at South Square. Prizes will be awarded for:

  • Best Themed Cake
  • Tastiest Looking Cake
  • Best Overall Cake

To enter, be sure to share your photos on social media using #GreatLegalBake.
