Great Legal Bake

November 6, 2023 - November 10, 2023

The sweetest fundraiser of the year, the Great Legal Bake, returns from the 6 – 10 November 2023.

Calling all Star Bakers

Could you raise dough to support free frontline services that help some of society’s most vulnerable people? Are sweet treats up your street or does savoury make you rave-ery?

Whether it’s blondies or brownies, millefeuilles or petits fours, Black Forest gateau or Swiss roll, millionaire’s shortbread or pound cake, taking part is easy as pie. And if sweet stuff doesn’t melt your butter why not make samosas, sausage rolls, or savoury scones?

All you need to do is register through the button below and we’ll send you a bake pack full of useful stuff like posters, labels and stickers. So grab a group of friends or colleagues and organise a bake sale in your office, chambers, court or university and sell your tasty treats.

Are you a crummy baker, but you’d still like to take part? Why not see if a local bakery might donate some cupcakes?

If you are not able to take part during the official bake week, you are still welcome to sign up to bake on a date of your choice. Just let us know on the sign up form below!

Celebrating Pro Bono Week

The Great Legal Bake is part of Pro Bono Week. There will be a photo competition during the week, judged by Toby Brown – Chair of the Pro Bono Week Committee and Barrister at South Square. Prizes will be awarded for:

  • Tastiest Looking Cake
  • Best Overall Cake

To enter, be sure to share your photos on social media using #GreatLegalBake, or send you photo entries to signups@llst.org.uk.
