It all started with one of us saying “surely we can manage to make a sponge and put the kettle on”………………and it turned into a bonanza of bun making, lavender bag stitching and bunting hanging – a quest to raise a few pounds for CRY.
Our beloved Paul, who died in January 2006, loved Battenberg, loved cake!!! So we got started.
Women baked, men gardened and were in charge of logistics. Children painted signs and wrapped parcels, in readiness for the 14th of June.
It was a great day with tombola, bran-tub and crafts to accompany the teas and cakes. Family, friends and neighbours were all very supportive and the weather did its best – just one shower and a few windy gusts.
We were really thrilled to find that, at the big count, we’d raised £574.90. Now for a lie down……..no more recipes……until next year?!!
