British charity Leukaemia Research is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, and celebrity chef Nigella Lawson is supporting their latest fundraising campaign.

The chef helped a group of children whip up some special fairy cakes for an “un-birthday” party last week. The campaign has been inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Through The Looking Glass, where Alice is told un-birthdays can be celebrated 364 days a year.

“My fairy cakes go down well with nostalgically-minded adults while children just pick off or lick off the icing,” said Nigella. “Anything that is too hard or too fiddly can be daunting but everyone can help Leukaemia Research by making a batch of my fairy cakes and throwing an Un-Birthday Party fundraiser.”

The charity is encouraging children of all ages to throw “un-birthday parties” to raise funds for the organization. Supporting doctors and scientists at hospitals and academic institutions throughout the UK, Leukaemia Research funds a wide range of projects, from basic laboratory research to clinical trials with patients. The charity is devoted exclusively to leukaemia, the lymphomas, myeloma, aplastic anaemia, myelodysplasia, the myeloproliferative disorders and the related blood disorders in both children and adults.
