Cakes for Charity...

A few weeks ago Miss Bucket helped two sisters, who live a couple of doors away and who she goes to school with, sell toys and teddies to raise some money for Cancer.

I thought this was brilliant and tried to encourage her in this new enterprise.  They went from door to door distributing handmade leaflets and I think they raised approx £50.

Last weekend they sold cakes to raise even more money and I helped a little (more were in the oven).
 The other girls' mum made a load too and other mums donated some more.

It's a good cause, one close to my heart as the disease took my mum when I was 20, so I think we were all happy to help them any way we could.


The sun was shining and the girls spent all morning getting things ready. The stall looked lovely and the cakes went quickly, loads of people came to the stall and donated generously - an overall success.

I think the total came to £340. I couldn't have been more pleased, well done girls. Sam xx


  1. Well done to your girls thats a great amount of money to raise!

    1. Thanks Anne, they did an absolutely brilliant job and couldn't stop smiling the whole time. Really excited about raising all that money.

  2. Hi Sam,

    Well done to them. How lovely to see children doing good deeds. And that's a lot of cakes you made, I think you deserve a pat on the back as well! xxx

    1. Thanks Emma, I'm always worried when I make cakes for others and have to check to see if they go well. I needn't have worried this time, the girls told me that all mine went first. Sam
