Volunteer members of Cuidiú Cork, local businesses, baby-related services and parents, carers and supporters of the charity are gearing up for a jam-packed - and jam-filled! - Baby Fair at the beginning of next month. Cuidiú Cork’s Baby Fair & Cake Sale promises to be a fun and informative event for parents and parents-to-be on the hunt for locally crafted baby goods, organic and artisanal children’s clothing, support and advice services, and table loads of cakes.

Young children will be entertained by face-painting and music and fun with Gemma Deakin of Musical Munchkins. With a large raffle featuring parent-approved prizes and an enormous bake off-worthy cake sale, it promises to be a fun-filled afternoon for parents, carers, and parents-to-be.

The event also serves to highlight to parents the many supportive services Cuidiú Cork offer and the various weekly events held to encourage and help parents. Cuidiú have trained parent to parent supporters, breastfeeding counsellors and so many other volunteers who bake, organise coffee mornings in their homes and give so much in order to support other parents as they themselves have been supported in the past. It's a free entry event but any donations will go towards Cuidiú Cork to enable the organisation to continue to providing the ongoing support that they strive to offer.
