TUCO Chair’s CharityWritten by Shamari Steele
Last month we announced that Mary’s Meals had been selected as the TUCO Chair’s Charity, with over £15,000 already raised for the organisation, which feeds children in developing nations with a meal every school day.
As part of the fundraising efforts, TUCO members can get involved by purchasing The Bako Cake Kit to create Mary’s Meals cupcakes to sell at their sites. There are two options in the boxes, plain or chocolate, and they come with a Mary’s Meals branded sugar plaque. Each kit costs £63.90 (to make 180 cupcakes), of which £13.90 is donated to Mary’s Meals. This £13.90 can feed a child for an entire school year.
Bako were on hand at the TUCO Competitions to show off the cupcakes and explain how members can support Mary’s Meals.
Andrew Gahagan, marketing assistant at Bako, said: “We’re proud to support such a fantastic charity, we recognise how important it is for these people to be fed while at school. We’re going to work alongside TUCO and Mary’s Meals to raise as much money as possible!”
