Cake and a Cuppa

Help BBC Radio York host our biggest ever Cake and a Cuppa event this Yorkshire Day.

What is Cake and a Cuppa?

After hearing so much about the effects of loneliness and isolation in North Yorkshire, BBC Radio York knew we had to stop talking about it and do something about it. That's when Cake and a Cuppa was born.

These events have been hugely successful across North Yorkshire and for the second year, we’re asking you to help us host as many events as possible in just one day.

Join in

Host your own event on Yorkshire Day, Thursday 1 August.

Your event can take place anywhere that you can eat cake, drink tea, and have a good natter. Some examples could be in your community centre, your church, your staff room, even your garden shed.
