Bake a cake as part of Deaf Awareness Month
Charity / Tue 26th Sep 2023 at 11:00am
TO celebrate Deaf Awareness Month and the start of the baking season, RNID are encouraging everyone to support people who are deaf or have hearing loss by hosting a bake sale.
Whether you’re a seasoned baker, enjoy eating the cookie dough when no one is looking, or just like watching baking on tv, hosting a bake sale is a great way to have fun and make a difference.
87,000 Deaf people across the UK use British Sign Language (BSL), a rich and visual language which involves hand shapes and movements, lip patterns, facial expressions and shoulder movements.
BSL was legally recognised in 2022 but deaf people still face many barriers in society, and we need your help to break them down.
You don’t need to be a baking expert to make your event a success, and we’ll support you along the way. You can download lots of free materials from RNID’s website, plus top tips for running a great event.
So grab your apron, get some friends together and bake for RNID.
