Increase cake donations with poetry...

By getting treats donated, your cake stall sales become pure profit. But how can you make sure your request gets noticed? Print poems onto stickers, attach to paper plates and send them out to supporters!

Cake stalls make a popular feature at fundraising events, or can be run as a standalone activity to draw in extra funds. Posters or request letters might not catch the attention of your supporters, so our fundraising friends on Facebook suggested this great tried-and-tested method of sending out a paper plate with a cake poem attached!

The paper plate is intended as a prompt, so don't be offended if cakes are handed in without the plate (bulk packets of paper plates can be picked up very cheaply)! So choose a poem, print onto stickers, put onto plates and hand them out. Let us know how you get on!

Poems

Attached to this rhyme is a paper plate
Upon which we would ask you to donate
Cookies, muffins, pies or a cake
Anything that you would like to bake
Your home-baked delights
Will satisfy our plight
And show that you care
About our summer fayre
(Rae Surch)

Pat a cake, pat a cake hear our plea
fill this plate as soon as can be
buy them or bake them, we don't mind
whatever you send us will be very kind!
(Lucy Baxter)

I am a little plate
as lonely as can be
please won't you bake some cakes
to place upon me.
(Julie Caines)

I am just a little paper plate
and only very small
but fill me up with yummy cakes
and we'll sell them on our stall.
(Tracey Johnson)
