May 25th: The PCBakers launch their first bake sale at PCB to raise money for the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund
The PCBakers is an informal association of people coming from different groups and institutions inside the Parc Científic de Barcelona. Once a month, they will plan a charity bake sale breakfast in which volunteer bakers can share their homemade pastries with everyone else at the PCB. Anyone is welcome to come enjoy the food, meet folks from other groups in the PCB, and to learn a little bit about the charity of the month. They request that all attendees give some money in exchange for each delicious portion of food that they eat (€3 suggested donation, cash or Bizum).
The first bake sale will be on May 25th from 9:00-11:00 to raise money for the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. The bake sale will be located near the entrance of Cluster II (on Av. Doctor Marañón side, above Fifteen). There will be an assortment of both healthy and more indulgent treats like cookies, cakes, muffins, quiches, tarts, as well as dishes to accommodate common dietary restrictions (lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan, etc.). At the end of each bake sale, the PCBakers will announce how much money was raised and send 100% of all donations to the charity.
Calling all bakers!
The math is simple: If more pastries are available to be sold during the bake sale, more money will be raised. Therefore, the PCBakers encourage everyone to heat up their ovens and bring their favorite recipe to the bake sale! Please let the PCBakers know in advance what you plan to bring- they will clean and return any plates or trays to you in the afternoon.
Join the crew
If you are interested in becoming part of the PCBakers crew, you can request to join the Google Groups mailing list. This is where anyone can propose a charity for a future bake sale, volunteer as a baker or to help run the bake sales, and to get notified of all upcoming events. Thanks for helping our initiative to bake for change! The PCBakers is a spinoff of the Incubakers group, which was started in 2013 at the Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona; since its inception, the Incubakers initiative has raised over €30.000 with their monthly bake sales. If the PCBakers initiative can get enough support and participation here in the PCB, they believe that each bake sale could raise ~€500!
