Baking for MSF

Cooking or baking can be really fun ways of raising vital funds MSF and your friends, family and colleagues will enjoy it too! With the help of some inspirational fundraisers, we've put together a few ideas to get you started. 


MSF cupcakes

Anna’s husband was running a race for MSF. To help with his fundraising efforts she baked these fantastic cupcakes for him to sell at work.

“I love decorating cakes and thought by creating the MSF logo on a tasty treat the cause behind the fundraising wouldn't be forgotten,” explained Anna.


Anna raised £220, which could pay for hepatitis B vaccines for 682 people.

Ideas to get you started

  • Cook up a batch of buns and sell them to people at school, work or a local fair
  • Host your own bake off with friends
  • Announce a 'cake week' at work and ask you colleagues to volunteer a cake each day for MSF



MSF supper club
For five years Alicia has been inviting people to her home every few weeks to enjoy a delicious feast from a different part of the world. Her supper club is now an east London institution and normally sells out within hours.
“I was cooking a lot for my friends, all the time, and so I thought if people pay for the food then I can give it to charity.” said Alicia.
Alicia has raised over £62,000 for MSF so far. That could send three doctors to the field for a year.

Ideas to get you started

  • Host a dinner party for MSF and invite friends to make a donation
  • 'Come Dine With Me' challenge- round up a few friends and spend a night eating at each person’s house. Ask for a ‘sign up’ donation, mark each other’s efforts and give a prize to the winner
  • If you’re a culinary master then why not hold a cookery class at home or offer to make snacks and drinks for a local event, club or venue and ask for donations for MSF in return
