Hi Cake friends xx
Recently I was honoured to be asked if I’d help to make a dream Wedding come true for a couple in my post code area – one of whom is terminally ill.
When the e-mail first came through from the Charity ‘Gift of a Wedding’ I’m ashamed to say I have to admit I nearly deleted it thinking it might be a scam.
But thankfully something in me trusted the subject title enough to open the mail and take 5mins to read what it was all about.
A couple in my area were getting married on Friday and the Charity was contacting local ‘Wedding businesses’ to ask if they would be willing to gift their services to help make the couples wedding a beautiful day.
To be eligible to receive help from the Charity you have to meet criteria which if you take a few minutes to read like I did you will understand makes this very worth while.
Anyway – I was asked if I could gift 50 vanilla cupcakes, or anything I felt I could do.
That’s not a big wish to ask, and cost to me is nothing when measured with the amount of pride I have knowing I’ve helped with many others to give this couple a day to remember for however long they have left.
I’ve never met them, and I probably never will, but I know I can sleep better knowing I didn’t delete the mail that day.
So if any of
you are ever contacted by this Charity, please don’t delete, they don’t ask for the earth, just kindness.
A link for Gift of a Wedding – a UK based Charity that has no outside funding is linked below.
Here’s a photo of the cupcakes I made – ( I also made some favours which I hung on a Wishing tree). Another local business was providing the Wedding cake.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog – Karen xxxxx
