Dear Members,

We’ve rounded off the summer with a fantastic fortnight of tennis followed by an evening of fun and some superb dancing at the National Yacht Club, so now you are invited to participate in a very special challenge –

The Great Sandycove Bake-Off!

It’s being held in association with the National Coffee Morning fundraiser for our Hospices in Blackrock and Harold’s cross.

All you have to do to enter this challenge is make a few buns/cupcakes/muffins – and one of your batch will be entered in the competition. We will line up all the buns for an invited celebrity Judge to adjudicate. Entries will all be anonymous and there will be a prize each for the best male and female baker!

And if you don’t want to enter – please come along anyway, have a coffee and a chat, meet other members, and if you can bring a cake or some biscuits that would be wonderful. There will be a donations box for the hospice.

We will need some helpers on the day to serve and clear, so please make yourself known to Valerie when you arrive if you can give a hand, and if you can come at 10.30 to help, even better.

And finally – if you think of it – BRING YOUR OWN MUG – we may not have enough mugs if this is well supported, so please avoid the use of plastics, and bring and take away your own!

Warm regards,

The Committee –
Shelagh, Jenny, Liam, Barry, Philip, Alan, Ellen, Roy, Fred, Paddy, Mark & Valerie.
