With the motto “We make a difference, one cake at a time”, Free Cakes for Kids Fulham is a movement of local volunteers and community groups, who share the simple belief that every child deserves a birthday cake no matter what their circumstances. Free Cakes for Kids Fulham was set up in May 2020 as part of the Free Cakes for Kids UK organisation founded in 2008 by Henriette Lundgren in Oxford and has since grown to nearly 60 volunteer groups around the country. They bake birthday and celebration cakes for families who find it difficult to provide a birthday cake for their child for reasons such as financial hardship or illness.
All cakes are baked 100% by volunteers, who operate locally and independently in their own private kitchens. These cakes are homemade and delicious, usually featuring the child’s favourite theme and colours such as their favourite football team, Disney princesses or Cartoon character. The volunteers do this because they love baking and are passionate about their communities.
‘We bake cakes for families in need. A single birthday cake may not end poverty or hunger, but it will make a huge difference to the birthday child and their families. We believe in a caring community built on trust, compassion, and support’ – Free Cakes For Kids UK shared value.
Free Cakes for Kids Fulham is a growing community. They are working to secure more referral partners and are looking to recruit some more enthusiastic and talented volunteer bakers to bake the cakes for children in the area who might not otherwise have a birthday cake to celebrate their birthday.
In the first month on setting up the group they have agreed a referral partnership with Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank, Crosslight advice and recruited four volunteers, but this is just a beginning of this group and they are working to connect with more organisations and generous bakers in Fulham.
