Camberwell Arts Festival Fundraiser

Saturday’s fundraiser at Camberwell Arts Festival was a big success! There was live music, craft stalls and art workshops. The Mini Cooking Club was in the middle of it all selling homemade cakes, breads and biscuits to raise funds for our organisation. 

It took a little while to build up momentum but by mid-afternoon there was quite a crowd. The most popular item was the rich chocolate and guinness cake, baked by one of our members, followed closely by the banana bread. 

When we finally packed away the marquee – which was threatening to blow away in the gale - all the cakes left on the table had been sold. We received a number of enquiries about our work and even an offer to volunteer or two.

The donations have not been counted yet but the support was overwhelming, despite adverse weather conditions. More pictures will be uploaded to Facebook soon! 

We’d like to thank Kelly O’Reilly (Camberwell Arts Festival) for giving us this opportunity. We also thank all the Mini Cooking Club volunteers who lent their time and baking skills to help us raise money for our vital work in the community. 

The festival continues until June 23rd with many more events to come! It would be great if everyone showed their support for the local area by attending.
