Grand Welsh Cakes Challenge Progress
Why a Grand Welsh Cakes?
Welsh cakes are a beloved part of Welsh heritage and culture, and we want to showcase their deliciousness and creativity in the Welsh Cakes Challenge during our Grand Week in Wales. By participating in this challenge, you can support our fundraising efforts and help those in need across Wales. Join us in celebrating Welsh tradition and making a difference!
What is the Grand Welsh Cakes challenge?
Any number of cakes you make, big or small, will all add up to our grand total. If you have managed to sell any of your cakes – please enter your donations below!
With families and individuals joining in right across Wales, we hope to link together communities and lift spirits through engaging in a common goal, and investing our energies in fun, traditional activities. Who knows, perhaps you might learn a new skill in the process!
