Our new charity partner - Martin House Children's Hospice
SMILES CREATED THROUGH EVERY PURCHASE YOU MAKE
We're not only passionate about amazing home baking experiences and gifting, we are also committed to our community too.
We are proud to be an official partner of Martin House Children’s Hospice in Yorkshire. It provides specialist care to children and young people with life-limiting conditions along with support for the whole family.
The support Martin House gives doesn’t stop at vital medical care though. It includes lots of music, art, trips out and cake and these play a big part in the support that’s offered to families in difficult times.
We’re going to be donating 35p from every Bottled Baking Co product sold online to Martin House so that families can share special moments together and create memories to cherish, with the aim of raising £10,000!
Why we’re working with Martin House Children’s Hospice
Both The Bottled Baking Co and Martin House believe in:
- Bringing joy to the everyday and creating moments that matter
The power of good cake to bring people together, offer respite from busy life and give a moment of indulgence to cherish
The cakes made at Martin House are infamous among families who are supported by the team there and bring moments of joy in otherwise difficult times. They create opportunities for conversation and mutual support, and many of the children and young people love baking their own cakes too!
Robin, the Head Chef, has been there since the day the hospice opened in 1987 and is loved by all who know him. Comments about Robin from families include:
“I can vouch for the excellence of Robin’s cake. It is like an extra hug in times of most need.”
“Robin’s cakes brought love and light into our lives at the very saddest of times.”
Please visit the Martin House website for more general information about the care they provide.
Some quotes about Martin House’s care
“Until we’d come to Martin House for the first time, we didn’t realise how much difference it makes to get an uninterrupted night’s sleep.”
“It’s the holistic care, the fact there are people here who understand our needs. We come here knowing we have that raft of support, but all in one place.”
“For us, it’s a very happy place, a very welcoming place, you can relax, enjoy time with other people. There’s something here for everybody.”
“Martin House managed to turn our worst nightmare into something memorable and special. They got our family back together, and those are memories that you keep forever.”
