Wimbledon 2015 Wheelchair Ladies Doubles Champion Jordanne Whiley has ‘served’ up a cake to urge people across the country to get baking and help provide life changing care and support for disabled people.
The tennis ace is supporting Give & Bake which is about bringing together friends, family and work colleagues for a cup of tea and a slice of cake in exchange for a donation. Whether it’s a tea party at home, cakes for the office or a traditional bake sale at school, the money raised will make a positive difference to the lives of disabled people across the UK.
Jordanne was born with Brittle Bone Disease (Osteogenesis Imperfecta) and had been playing tennis since the age of three. She has since gone on to win every grand slam title and a Paralympic bronze medal making her one of Britain’s most successful tennis players. She said:
“I’m proud to support Give & Bake and it’s always important for me to get the first serve in! A tea and cake break is a great excuse to be sociable too, so I would love to see everyone getting involved and raising money for Leonard Cheshire Disability.”
One in six people are disabled in the UK. Leonard Cheshire Disability supports disabled people to live independently, contribute economically and participate fully in society.
