The efforts to bake yummy cakes and encourage my work colleagues to join in, crack open some free range eggs and do some free range baking with compassion themselves were a success in the end. I’m both pleased and proud to say the collective figure raised by our efforts was a respectable £58.28 which I hope Compassion in World Farming will be able to put to good use in campaigns to promote free range and putt an end to battery egg production.

I have to say I’m glad it wasn’t has hot in my kitchen as it has been all week, otherwise I may have found it a little harder to bake with compassion this afternoon! While Chris was busy watching the men’s Wimbledon final, I slaved away in the kitchen preparing my cakes to sell to colleagues in order to raise money for the Compassion in World Farming Bake With Compassion campaign (well I say slave but it was fun really!) and put my super duper mixer to the test creaming and beating and sounding like it was about to take off.
In a world where everyone is so busy and nobody has time to stop and think, never mind to think about themselves, we have many questions we should be asking ourselves. Why do we just keep going as if all that matters is accumulation and driving the consumer way of life currently existing in Britain? When are we going to stop and take stock? Think about what we are doing to ourselves and the planet? And not just pay it lip service… actually stop and think seriously… take the time to consider fully what impact is being had on our bodies, our minds, our homes, our lives and the world we live in. Let’s face it, if we leave it too long, it will be too late.
