Great York Cake Off

Can you rise to the occasion? This year we are hosting the Great York Cake Off to raise money for Mentally Fit York.


Sign up by Tuesday 19 October to enter a cake, cupcake or traybake into our competition. There will be winners in each category and an overall winner. The winning bake will be sold across campus for a full term, with profits donated to Mentally Fit York. Our winners will also win a share of £100 worth of baking goodies, a Great York Cake Off apron, and more!

Donate and buy

Come along to the Great York Cake Off event on Friday 22 October from 12pm in Vanbrugh dining and try some free cake! There will be donation pots around if you wish to make a cash donation on the day. Sign up to our newsletter for more information.

about mentally fit york

All the money raised will be in aid of Mentally Fit York, which will promote good mental health on a local, national and international scale. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as 24/7 mental health support for York students and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.

Your support may also go towards providing suicide prevention training, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships or it could contribute to a range of other initiatives which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
