Dorset-based charity, Diverse Abilities, is gearing up for this year’s Great Dorset Bake Sale taking place on Friday 1 June.


The local charity is hoping that more than 100 bake sales and coffee mornings will be held simultaneously across Dorset to raise vital funds for the charity’s essential work supporting children and adults with disabilities, and their families.


Nicole Warrilow, community fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, said: “There is still time to sign up, bake a difference and make some dough! Who doesn’t love an opportunity to eat the cake!”


Everyone that takes part in the Great Dorset Bake Sale will receive a fundraising pack with bake sale tips, cake recipes to choose from and how to make your bake sale event a success, plus much more!


Nicole added: “If you can’t hold a bake sale on 1 June, not a problem. You can hold a bake sale anytime of the year to raise funds for Diverse Abilities. Just let us know and we can send you a pack to get started.”


If anyone is considering holding a bake sale or coffee morning, as part of the Great Dorset Bake Sale please contact or call 01202 718266. You can also visit to sign up to take part!


Every penny counts and by baking a difference and raising just £50, the charity can purchase a variety of sensory toys for use by adults or children supported by the charity. By raising £100 will fund the entire nursing team for an hour at our specialist school.
