A recipe for St Mungo’s Broadway Woolly Hat Day cupcakes could help bakers across the country to support homeless people this winter.
St Mungo's Broadway is calling on bakers up and down the UK to show their support for homeless people by taking part in Woolly Hat Day on Friday 29th January 2016. Now in its sixth year, one of the most popular ways of supporting Woolly Hat Day is through bake sales in schools, offices and community spaces.
As well as bakes, Woolly Hat Day sees hundreds of people donning beanies, baseball caps and berets to help St Mungo's Broadway raise money for its work supporting homeless men and women. This year, St Mungo's Broadway is aiming to raise £60,000 – a sum which would make life-changing differences to vulnerable people. There are lots of ways for people to take part and help them reach their ambitious total.

Howard Sinclair, St Mungo’s Broadway Chief Executive, said, “St Mungo's Broadway believes that everyone should have a place to call home and be able to fulfil their hopes and ambitions. Woolly Hat Day is a chance to show support for those without a home, or at risk of losing one. With homelessness rising and Woolly Hat Day in its sixth year we want it to be even more of a success in raising funds and awareness of our work and the problems people face. By putting your hat on for Woolly Hat Day, or bidding for one of our pieces of famous headgear, you can help make a difference to the lives of people who find themselves without a home.”
Minky Kitten, a Bath-based cake decorating company, has developed a delicious recipe for the cakes which have a tasty orange sponge base with mouth-watering orange buttercream.
