Update from Stowmarket Sugar Craft

We had hoped to start holding meetings again in September, the first since the lockdown started in February, but following the new government guidelines we have had to cancel and have no idea when we can meet again. We know that many of our members were looking forwards to seeing friends again after so many months and are very disappointed at yet another delay. The most important thing is that everyone stays safe and well so we just have to look forwards to the time when we can all get together again safely.

In the meantime, we are planning to be busy. Following the success of the Christmas cake sale last year to raise funds for St Elizabeth hospice, when we raised in excess of £3,000, we hope to do the same again this year and hope to raise even more money.

Not being able to meet up to organise ourselves makes this a bit more complicated but we’re going to push ahead and carry on. However producing enough cakes is an expensive business and we want to make more than last year, so we are asking for some help from the public.

We are hoping to raise some money to help with the cost of ingredients. If anyone reading this would like to help out please go along to the hospice shop in Stowmarket and donate to help us buy more ingredients.

Donations, however small, will be a great help and hopefully we can make even more money for the hospice. All the cakes we made last year were sold in less than a week so we’re confident that we can do this with a bit of help.

We all feel this is such a good cause; the hospice touches so many lives in the area. Please help us to help them in what has been a very difficult year.
