Wimbledon champion makes a ‘racquet’ about Give and Bake!
11 August 2015
Jordanne Whiley usually serves up aces on her way to one of her many tennis triumphs, but now she's urging people to serve up cake to friends and family to raise money for charity.
‘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.’
The tennis ace is supporting Give & Bake — 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 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.
