1: Where and when?
First things first: pick a date and pick a place. It could be your house, a local coffee shop, a park, at work, or even outside in your street.
2: Let us know
Register with us! We’ll send you fundraising materials, and be on hand with all the advice you need to make the day a roaring success.
3: Spread the word
Instagram, Facebook, email and Twitter - oh my! Promote your event far and wide using #BrewAndBake and our handy poster. Invite everyone – friends, family, work pals. Some will eat, some will bake, and some will help you run the day. Tell us too, and we’ll help you get the message out there!
4: The fiddly bits
- Keep a list of ingredients, and use our cake labels to highlight nuts, dairy, gluten etc. - you don't want people with allergies to be turning blue!
- If you're collecting money, you'll need permission from the owner of your venue, or a permit from the local council if you're holding your event on public property.
- Keep it safe by following basic hygiene principles when handling food.
- Get printing! We'll post fundraising materials to you when you sign up, but you'll also want our print pack with bunting, posters, cake labels and instructions.
5: Get baking
Make sure you have everything you need for the day. Local supermarkets, shops or cafes may be willing to provide some food and drink for free for your event, so don’t be afraid to ask!
6: Let them eat cake
Take time to enjoy the event with your guests.

7: Wrap up
Once everything's packed away, thank all your guests for coming and giving so generously. Say a public thank you on social media by sharing all your photos; you may even get a few last minute donations from friends who couldn’t make the day. And do share them with us - we want everyone to know that you're doing your bit to stop prostate cancer being a killer. We've also got thank you posters you can use.
8: Pay in
When all of the pennies are counted, you can send them in by online donation, over the phone on 0800 082 1616, by post or by direct bank transfer (contact us for details!)
