    to tie in with Kate we raised quite a shocking amount of money with a cake walk at Tylers fundraiser. We had total of maybe 40 cakes, all different . Some in Christmas shapes, I did a large gingerbread man, some were shaped like ornaments or Santa. There was a beautiful glazed sponge, a carmel apple cake a fruitcake , you get my drift . You sell booklets of tickets say 5 chances for $10.00 and there is a row of chairs and every 1/2 hour or so depending on how many cakes you have you allow one group in( if you have 6 chairs then 5 people) and play a Christmas song. when the music stops have them find a chair( musical chairs!) the one left out wins the cake! Or marked sidewalk on the floor with phrases like winner, sorry ect and when the music stops the one on winner wins, or pass an ornament and the one who has it in their hands wins when the music stops. It doesn't have to be cake, it could be cany, cookie platters, wine, ect. We sold single tickets as well as booklets. The money comes from the fact that the winner pays only 2.00 for something that is worth more but will have to spend more if they really like that cake!

    If you decide to go with the cup cakes, I can make you some sugar trees, stars, holly etc to put on the top. If you want some mini fruit Christmas cakes then I can make and ice them for you, you could make a little bag for them to go in. Jars of pickled onions with nice labels and a cover over the lid :unsre:

    Christmas tags are another option, I always buy lots of them and if you need anything printing just holler

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Hospices are close to my heart too, I do all I can to support St Luke's who looked after Dad and any other hospice. I also give to MacMillan and Marie Cure

    I know

    Sharon didn't feel the need to see the hospice nurses until within the 2 weeks before she passed away and saw them only a handful of times (what a girl hey?) They were fantastic, anything she needed was sorted immediately, and when she went into the hospice for her last 14 hours the care she received was so tender, what an amazing and special bunch of people.

    They are my chosen charity, along with Macmillan and Cancer Research.

    Firstly.. Well done on your sale.

    I am a huge fan of Christmas craft stalls.
    If you are not having the next stall until December, remember that many people will already have purchased all of their Christmas cards/crackers/presents by then. So I think decorations, or small personalised gifts, will be your best option.

    Found a few ideas if you need them:

    Good luck.

    Thank you MP

    I'm hoping I can do another sale around 18/19 November as I know they'll have all been paid by then!

    I'll go and have a look at those websites right now, there's a couple there I recognise but haven't looked at in ages

    The ball's rolling....I just spoke with the guy at the water company who is going to double check I can go in again, but he says as it's for charity he doesn't see a problem!

    Keep your fingers crossed!
