Bag packer alert!!!!

So onward to the next challenge and for this one I need your help but not monetary help. I need your hands and a small amount of your time.

Morrisons in West Kirby have very kindly offered me a bag packing date and I need volunteers to help me with the packing

The date is Friday 14th February and I still desperately need helpers

Please can you help, pretty please!

Contact me via this page, facebook or twitter if you can help.

Bake off success

WOW – what an amazing two days – thank you so much to everyone who came along, those who bought cakes after and also to those who couldn’t make it but made a donation.20140201_104241[1]

£488 raised over the two days which together with the donations received online over the weekend has pushed me to over £3000 – all in 3 months!

All I can say is thank you to all of you for showing me such commitment and support – I really do appreciate it and so do the Cardiomyopathy Association





Happy New Year!

So into month 3 and the challenges continue!

Everybody is feeling a bit low and a bit skint and a bit bleurgh so a challenge to myself – DRY JANUARY!

What better way to start the year than with a good detox – got to help the training surely!


And then to end the month, a Cake & Craft Sale.

Double whammy this time – Friday 31st January and Saturday 1st Feb, both days 10am – 2pm and lots of cakes for sale.

All taking place at our house 5 Gorse Road, Meols . The cooking hat and apron are on and the great challenge baking begins – hope you can come too!

Everyone welcome.

Looking forward to the table looking like this again!

Hair today, gone today!!!


So the day arrived and the nerves were really setting in. But then all the messages of support started arriving via text, facebook and twitter – so thank you to all of you!
Then the even better news – I had broken through the barrier of the first thousand pounds raised – woohoo!

Leanne at the charity messaged me to say a family had read the article in the paper and had made contact with the charity to get support for them because their daughter has cardiomyopathy but they only found out about the charity when they saw the article – that is even better news than the fundraising – I hope the CMA can make a difference to their lives – thank you Leanne.

So here are the photos of the event
Thank you so much to everyone who was able to come along – it was interesting watching your faces while it was being done! I think you were all more scared than I was!
Thank you to Beverly Macca who provided shots, flowers and a new woolly hat!

Thank you also to the very generous people who were passing by and put money in the bucket – greatly appreciated.
And apologies to anyone who was trying to get through Hoylake and wondered what on earth was going on!

Finally thank you to Claire who was definitely more scared than me and who is feeling very guilty about scalping me – thank you – I couldn’t have done it without you!

Enjoy the photos!
