On the 25th May 2011 Cake-licious attended a, small but perfectly formed, Ladies Pamper Evening organised by the Hull Esteem Consortium. Esteem are Hull City Council's private sector partner and work with the authority's Building Schools for the Future team playing an important role in the transformation of education across Hull, with particular focus on its infrastructure. You can read more about Esteem and their involvement in projects across Hull by visiting their website http://www.esteem.cc/
The evening consisted of lots of fab treats for hard working ladies who could get their nails done, treat themselves to new cosmetics and delight in enjoying a delicious cupcake or four (Cake-licious cupcakes, of course!). See our sweet little stall below:
The event was a huge success with funds raised being donated to the company's nominated charity, Downright Special, which will enable them to buy one education pack (and partly fund another) that will be given to a child with Down Syndrome when he or she starts school in September. The pack includes educational toys specifically aimed at children with Down Syndrome, along with sign language resources and other tools that will assist the child and their teaching assistant right through his or her time in the education system. If you would like to know more about this very worthy of charities please visit http://www.downrightspecial.co.uk/.
If you live in the Hull area please look out for details of their next event, particularly a similar event to the Pamper Night that will take place in December.
Congratulations to Ann and Claire on a well organised and successful evening!
