Andrew from Blu Hair and Beauty in Dundee contacted me recently to ask if I could help with a fundraiser they were holding in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. Every year thousands of people throughout the UK hold Blooming Great Tea Parties to help fundraise for this very worthy organisation, but this was an afternoon tea party with a
difference: the cakes were being served to people visiting Blu
Hair and Beauty for a Great Big Blow Dry!
Clients were invited to make a donation for their blow dry, and to eat cake and drink tea too. A win-win situation in my opinion!
When I arrived I was met by a lovely group of people who were all obviously very excited about the busy afternoon ahead. It might have been pouring down outside but the welcome was warm and cheery.
|Marie Curie Daffodil-Themed Cakes|
The cakes? Well they really had to be daffodil-themed didn’t they? The clients who were being beautified could choose between lemon or vanilla Italian meringue buttercream, topped with sugar daffodils. The cakes looked lovely, so did the blowdried ladies, and it all helped the wonderful staff at Blu Hair to raise over £1,300! A fantastic effort I’m sure you’ll agree.
Since then, I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the lovely feedback I’ve received. Marie Curie featured the cakes on their Facebook page and they seemed to be a big hit there!
It was an absolute pleasure to be involved with this lovely event, and if you’d like some help hosting a Great Big Tea Party in the Fife area for Marie Curie in the future, please do get in touch, and I’ll do my very best to help.
