Children in Need

Each year I organise some fund raising at work for Children in Need, this is no mean feat when I work mostly with men who work with computers. This year I asked them all to wear something spotty and donate £2 or donate £3 if they didn't wear spots. I never thought for one minute that spots are not really a man thing. I've got to give them 10 out of 10 for effort, they managed to get hold of some sticky spots and just stuck them all over their shirts. Even better they just donated money and the majority of them gave me more than the £2. 
My contribution was to make some fairy cakes with spots on, that they could purchase for a minimum 50p each. Now this I knew would be a hit because they really are big cake monsters. My friend Genna made some rocky road that we also sold for 50p. I then asked everybody to look in the bottom of their drawers and bags for any spare coppers. At the end of the day we managed to get £160 together. I was thrilled to bits, last year we made £42.
Right now I really could eat one of these cakes but were sold out!
