Lets all eat cake!

As part of our silver jubilee celebrations we are aiming to raise £10,000 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. We are inviting everyone to hold a tea party to help us reach our target. It doesn't have to be anything fancy - a Victoria sponge between a few friends is fine. Please email creative@beadsunlimited.co.uk and entitle your email 'Sea and Cakes' if you would like to join in. I can send you a poster and an info pack. What better excuse can there be to eat cake and have a chit chat?

Hi Michelle, You don't need to go anywhere, you can have one of our parties in your own living room with a few friends. Please have a look at my blog post for a bit more info if you're interested. http://www.beadbarmy.com/2011/01/sea-and-cakes-%e2%80%93-let%e2%80%99s-all-have-a-party/

Good luck for tomorrow Tracey. We now have quite a few people planning to flog cakes for the cause! An easy way to do it seems to be just to take them into your workplace and entice people when they are on their break!

A fabulous £66 was made by Tracey, the first person to hold a 'sea and cakes' party! I can't wait to see what happens with the other events. I'll be posting pics on www.beadbarmy.com later this week, so you can all have a good oggle at the cakes!

I'm very excited. Our first overseas party is being held this week in Southern Ireland. Al has been selling cakes in the gym where she works no less! I guess people figure that they'll be burning off the calories anyway! I should have the results tomorrow.

Thanks to Al in Ireland for raising 60 Euros for our RNLI sea and cakes campaign! Extra points for doing it in a fitmess mad arena (at the Gym)!
