Hairy Bikers call on community to raise money for MS

Our favourite motorbike-riding chefs, the Hairy Bikers, are back to support our sweetest fundraiser of the year.

Grab your mates, grab some cakes

Down-to-earth duo, Dave Myers and Si King, are challenging you to call on some mates and host a Cake Break on 4 October 2019 – or another date if that suits you better.

Whether you’re an expert baker or planning to pop to the supermarket for some ready-made treats, by raising dough you’ll be making a big difference to the lives of people affected by MS.

Raising money to make MS a thing of the past

Dave was eight years old when his mum was diagnosed with MS: “Within two years Mum was in a wheelchair and Dad and I became full-time carers. It was hard going. Back then there was hardly any support or respite for people affected by MS.

"But I do remember the MS Society opened so many doors for me as a young lad and my family – it made our lives just that bit better.

“There’s been a great deal of work done to support those with MS, but we still need to raise as much money as possible to make MS a thing of the past. And what better way to get a slice of the action than by hosting a Cake Break? Go on, grab a brew and share your bakes with your mates.”
