More Cakes...

I have been beavering away over the last week and made the 6 cakes for Gina Ferrari...

Cakes for Gina

...but also TEN more, that I am going to put towards a sale on this blog on 28th October, for Breast Cancer Care funds.

First ten cakes

I want to raise enough money to train a volunteer ...


£132 pays to connect someone going through breast cancer with a trained volunteer who has had a similar experience to them. We know how much reassurance and encouragement people can get from talking to someone who has been there, so we take care to find the best match we can for each individual.
‘Breast Cancer Care put me in touch with someone with first hand experience of breast cancer, so I could talk through how I felt after treatment. I was able to ask this person all the questions that had been running through my mind – were my feelings post treatment normal? Did they feel the same way when their treatment finished? It was so reassuring to speak to someone who shared similar fears and feelings of isolation.’
Janet, Leeds

...as this was the only thing that I would have liked, but didn't know about until recently.

If I sell each cake at £2.50, I will need 53 cakes to raise this amount - so I need to work hard on the knitting!

The ten I've made have taken about a week, so I am still hoping to have the whole lot made for the 28th.  All I need now are people to buy them!  I'll put them up with PayPal buttons and then I'll post them out to the buyers for free.
