We held our Comic Relief Showstopper Bake Sale on Friday the 13th of March up at our Owen Pine and Oak showrooms and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the turn out. I expected a few people but I think we had at least 50 people through our door. Most people baked a cake, muffins or cookies of some sort and initially I thought we would never sell it all but sure enough it all went.
I had lovely neighbours dropping up cakes at 9.30pm the night before and friends up until midnight baking ‘showstoppers’. I even managed to get hubby to decorate the cake to be raffled!!! A few pictures from the day can be viewed on our Facebook page here.
I also would like to thank the Orpington Runners for arranging their Friday morning run to fit around our coffee morning and for donating so generously.
Any left over cakes I took down to our local school at home time and sold for 20pence each and wow what a load of gannets!
I have today written and posted a cheque to Comic Relief for £441 which I think is a great achievement for a bake sale. Well done and thank you everyone.
We are only a few weeks away from Easter so watch this space for news about sales and promotions over the holidays!
