Everyone has heard of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and this year on the 28th September it is back!
This one day event hosted be Macmillan Cancer Support goes out to raise as much money the help people who’s lives have been affected by cancer. Up and down the country you will see coffee mornings popping up all over the place, why not bake a cake or buy a cake to show your support.
This year Silver Spoon, the homegrown sugar people, are the official sugar sponsor for the event and they have decided to launch a fantastic competition. They have just launched the Silver Spoons Little Local Hero Awards in partnership with Macmillan in which they are scouring the country for local heros under the age 18 who have done something truly special. Your local little hero could have looked after their little sister when they were ill, gone to great lengths to make Mother’s Day very special, or done something fantastic to raise money for charity.
If you know someone under 18 in your local area who you think would be a worthy winner, just follow this link and explain in less than 100 words who you are nominating, why, and what you would bake them to say thank you
Master Pâtissier Eric Lanlard, star of Channel 4’s Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard, will choose a Silver Spoon National Little Hero and to celebrate he will bake them a special cake of their choice! 10 runners-up will also receive a Silver Spoon Baking Hamper packed full of exciting treats.
There are sure to be some amazing stories from our local little heroes all over the country, but in the meantime don’t forget to register to hold your own coffee morning on the 28th September, just follow this link and you can help to raise money for people with lives affected by cancer. http://coffeeregister.macmillan.org.uk/2012/register.asp
We always have a coffee morning at work and across our bases in the UK raises lots of money for Macmillan and I’m sure this year won’t be any different. This year I think I’m going to make some of my yummy Cranberry and Cinnamon cupcakes, what will you be baking?
