Children Design Our Forget Me Not Charity Cupcake!

On International Children’s Day, we invited children from across Manchester to our Spinningfields cupcakery, to design a sweet treat to help raise money for Forget Me Not‘s new children’s hospice, Grace’s Place, which is opening later this year in Radcliffe. The hospice will provide much needed care and support to children with life-shortening conditions and their families in north Manchester.

HLC director and mum of one, Sarah Wilson-Gibbons, works closely with a number of Manchester charities and was thrilled to be able to show her support in such a fun and creative way:

“When we heard about the brilliant work Forget Me Not does we wanted to help raise money for the new children’s hospice. Inviting young families from across Manchester to come and design the cupcake that we’ll sell during June for the charity was a great way to involve local children in this fundraising campaign, especially on Children’s Day. We hope more families can come to see us in our Spinningfields shop over the coming weeks to show their support for Forget Me Not.”

The children (and their mums!) had a great time decorating four flower-themed cupcakes.

Helen Latham, senior fundraiser at Forget Me Not, said: “We’re so grateful for Hey Little Cupcake raising money for our charity in this way. It’s lovely to see children from across Manchester coming together to help with the fundraising drive, which will have such a positive impact on hundreds of young people and their families. Up until now, children with life-shortening conditions in north Manchester haven’t had any support from a children’s hospice, but with continued support from local businesses like Hey Little Cupcake, families and other community groups we will be able to make such a difference to those who need our care and support.”

The vanilla cupcake topped with a purple Forget Me Not flower is now on sale in both stores and will be throughout June. One pound from each purchase will be donated to the charity.
