We chose to host a Charity Cake Fest on a Wednesday club night at The Falcon – in aid of Worldwide Cancer Research ♥
Following a fabulous suggestion from Red Kite Pauline, some of us baked (or rather attempted to bake) yummy scrummy cakes and divine biscuits 🙂 and help support Pauline’s Daughter, Amy – who is currently studying hard at Uni whilst also focusing on raising a LOT of money for this very worthwhile cause.
Should Amy be successful in her quest…there is an awesome adventure awaiting her…..drum roll please….she will be trekking to the top of Kilimanjaro !!! Inspiration for both her charity fundraising and to also help raise the profile of all cancer charities and research concerned….sadly, cancer can affect many of us in life – whether personally, or known to us from family and friends…but we thought it would be truly wonderful to assist Amy with her dedication in helping to make lives better, and perhaps find a cure….

Hello, I’m Amy. I’m a former pupil of Wallingford School in Oxfordshire and am now a student at Cardiff University.
In August 2016 I will be undertaking the challenge of a lifetime- climbing to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. My fundraising target for this challenge is £3000, which will go to Worldwide Cancer Research to help them pay for the technology and resources required to find cures for all types of cancer, all over the world. This is an incredibly worthy cause that’s very close to my heart, and the money raised will one day ensure that no more lives are cut short by cancer. The current shocking statistic is that 1 in 2 of us will be affected by cancer at some point in our lifetime. With our help, Worldwide Cancer Research will be able to fund ground-breaking research to find new cures for cancer sooner. Please help me reach my fundraising target and allow me to raise awareness of this amazing charity by trekking to the top of the World’s highest free-standing peak! All donations are welcome, please give whatever you can 🙂
We had a massive amount of support and extremely kind donations….from our fabulous Falcon Landladies, Chrissie and Paula, all the bar staff, the Falcon regulars, our fellow Red Kites and other Scooter Buddies, work colleagues and good friends….we thank you ♥ the final total was a staggering £233.45 (which is a lot of cake – and generous donations, from lovely people)
The above link can still be accessed for some time yet….please take a look and have a good read – donations are hugely appreciated by Amy, and if you are unable to donate right now (pennies soon make pounds) please just take a moment to read, view the team updates and perhaps share….it’s for a great cause….thank you ☼
