Charity Cake Sale at the Winter Parliament 2013

Postby Aija » Sat Oct 05, 2013 7:45 pm

Many of you here knew my mother, either as Carla or Eliedra Darkleaf, seller of IC amulets. Just over three and a half years ago now, she passed away after a long struggle with cancer. What many of you don't know though, is that she did so at home, with her family in the house with her and her 15yr old cat purring by her side.

This was made possible by Marie Curie Cancer Care, who sent nurses to look after her, provided all the equipment, ensured the supply of her drugs and even the bed. They were marvellous, and we didn't have to pay a penny for their dedication and hard work. Instead, they rely on charitable donations and fundraising by the public.

So with kind permission from our Command Team, this Winter Parliament I am doing a repeat of the hugely successful Muddywood Charity Cake Sale (which raised an awesome £145) with all proceeds going to Marie Curie Cancer Care. I shall be setting up my blue gazebo in the main IC field, inside of which will be a table loaded with cake and a donations tin. All I ask is that for each slice something goes in the tin. Monsters, Players, Crew, all are welcome to help themselves (and maintain that sugar-high in the cold) so long as they donate.

Anyone wanting to donate a cake for the sale is more than welcome to, and they will be greatfully received. Please put a name label on any tins/boxes that they arrive in so I can return them, and provide a small label to put on the cake(s) saying what they are, and if they contain major allergy triggers.

Also, if anyone has a decent sized table I could borrow that would be great...

So, I'm home, the car is fully unpacked, and the donations tin dug out from the safety of the bottom of the boot. And I am very happy to announce that between all of you wonderful people we raised a grand total of £132.70 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, which Daniel and myself are going to round up to £150.

Thank you all, you are all wonderful! And I hope you enjoyed the cake, too :)

I wish I'd taken advantage of the cake stall, but my time management got out of hand over the weekend. I quite liked the sound of the apple cakes I heard mentioned tbh. Count me in if you ever want to do another :)
