Where it all started…

11 years ago, a little boy called Sammy was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Inspired by other fundraising events at his school, Sammy’s parents decided to hold a bake sale to raise funds and awareness of their son’s rare condition. They went on to hold events throughout their local area and in 2017, Bake a Difference became a national campaign.
