Running and Cake don't normally go together but this time they do!!

On Saturday 24th February at 11.00am we will be running a cake sale in Bishopstone village hall to raise money for the charity Children With Cancer.

In addition to the cakes, we are going to run a raffle with prizes like pub/restaurant vouchers, a round of golf for four at Ellesborough, a Bowling voucher and more ...

In 2005 a close friend received the news that all parents dread — that his beautiful one-year-old daughter Elizabeth had cancer. The wonderful Charity Children With Cancer helped Andrew and his family survive this difficult time. Thankfully Elizabeth is now clear of cancer and is living a normal life.

I am running the London Marathon this April to raise money for this worthy cause and would really appreciate your help. I will do the difficult part, running 26.2 miles, but would appreciate it if you could come along on the 24th February and buy some cake and refreshments.

If you would like to donate directly I have a Virgin Money Giving page set up:
virginmoneygiving.com/MichaelRogers43

If any of you are 'Great British Bake Off' future champions and would like to donate a cake or two, please send me a message on mpvrogers@gmail.com

I would also be grateful for tombola prizes — so if you are deciding what to do with those unwanted Christmas gifts, please drop them off with Sam Rogers, the school administrator, at Haddenham Community Junior School.
