International Day of the Midwife and International Nurses' Day 2019

Will you Raise Your Whisks this May?

The nursing community will come together in May to celebrate International Day of the Midwife (5th May) and International Nurses’ Day (12th May) by raising their whisks and hosting bake sales throughout the week to raise vital money for nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants in hardship.

As part of the Raise Your Whisks fundraising campaign, teams around the UK will be BAKING a difference and raising funds for Cavell Nurses’ Trust, who support nursing professionals facing severe difficulties.

Last year, around 3,300 nursing professionals sought help from Cavell Nurses’ Trust. On average, that’s more than 60 every week, or 9 nursing professionals searching for vital help, every day.

Many were facing worries of financial insecurity, mental health problems, homelessness and situations of domestic abuse. Cavell Nurses’ Trust is proud to stand up for nurses, midwives and HCAs in crisis and provides life-changing support through emotional support and grants.

Raise Your Whisks will provide a wonderful opportunity for teams to come together, celebrate the wonderful nursing profession, show off baking skills, build and renew friendships over cake and tea, and raise vital income to ensure that no nurse, midwife or HCA has to face hardship alone.

For the campaign, Cavell Nurses' Trust has teamed up with Dr. Oetker who are providing fabulous recipes and yummy baking goodies for you to try, so you can get that baking feeling!
