A GROUP of ladies from a local baking club have released a new recipe book to raise money for charity.
With the popularity of home baking never higher thanks to the BBC’s Great British Bake Off, ‘Cakes Bakes and Sweet Treats’ has been written and released by the ladies of the Eatmore Pudding Club to raise funds for Saint Catherine’s Hospice.
In 2005, the club produced its first recipe book and all 3,000 copies were sold with the profit from the books going to the Hospice.
The ladies have now produced a second book and again all the money from the sales will be in aid of the hospice.
The group have been holding fundraising events over the last nine months and have raised the £3,950 to pay for the printing and publication of the recipe book.
They thanked Jane and Stuart Waind of Marton Manor Farm Shop, in Sewerby, for letting the club ladies use the farm shop for many of their fundraising tastings and also for the launch of the recipe book last Monday.
Margaret Woodcock, one of the club’s five members, had cancer over 15 years ago and is now completely cured, but she has been left with lymphoedema in her legs and attends regular clinics at Saint Catherine’s.
She was first inspired to raise money for the Hospice in 2004 when it moved to its present site and the out patients clinic needed lots of new equipment and has carried on since then.
The book is available from the Hospice on 01723 378406 and from all the Hospice Shops for just £5, by post from Saint Catherine’s Hospice, Throxenby Lane, Scarborough YO12 5RE, and from many other venues.
