Many thanks to Gillian and her daughter who successfully raised over £300 for APP and a local cancer hospice at their recent Craft and Cake sale in the Wirrall!
Gillian said: “For a long time my daughters Ishbel (7), Eryn (5) and Carys (4) have been very keen to do a charity cake sale after seeing one of their friends do one outside their house last year. So after Easter I decided we should give it a try and do a joint one for APP with my friend Michelle and her daughter Niamh (6). As they had a friend in the local cancer hospice we decided to make it a joint event with the money being split between the two charities.
We thought it would be good to do it at our local library who were very supportive and sat down with the children to discuss the details and set a date. After that the children made lots of cards and also handmade jewellery to sell and nearer the time baking cakes as well. We advertised with lots of posters and flyers. On the day we were quite overwhelmed with friends contributing and attending. My friend Michelle also received a phone call on the day of the sale from ASDA where she works to say they had seen her poster and would like to match the funding.
We were delighted to raise £350 which as a result of the matched funding can go to both APP and St John’s Hospice. Everyone enjoyed the day very much and are delighted it went so well.“
It looks like everyone had a great day at the West Kirby Library last week!
APP thanks Gillian and her daughter for their support and huge effort involved in putting on this event!
