Sweet Charity

We’ve been a bit scarce with our blogging this month.  But that’s because we have been busy in the Delights Kitchen. 

From the get go with Delights by Cynthia, I always believed that it was important to give back by donating to charities through time or money or cake (it’s a great principal to live by).  We wanted to support a local Charity and an international charity.  As a business, the two main charities we support are Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and World Vision.

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice does fantastic work, supporting an estimated 350 life-limited children or young people, and their families, living within the communities ofEnfield, Barnet,Camden, Haringey and Islington.   They support these families in a flexible way – responding to their specific circumstance with services for the whole family, enabling them to live positive lives and face the future with hope, following the death of their child. The services provided range from practical and emotional support, ultimately through to end-of-life and bereavement care.

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.  World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. We sponsor an eight year old girl in Sierra- Leone through World Vision.  My eight year old daughter Jemimah (the real brains behind Delights by Cynthia) has plans for the business.  Her plan and dream over the next few years is to ‘go global’ and sponsor a child from each continent… “The next child we sponsor, will come from India”, she remind keeps reminding me…I’ll keep you posted on developments.This month we were able to support a number of charities with their fundraising by donating in cake!  We baked this fantastic Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Cake for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice ‘Eat to Give’ fundraising launch.  I had so much fun making this cake.  A black top hat with tea cups and cake balanced on the top, surrounded by cupcakes with ‘Eat Me’ and sugar hearts on the top.  Can you imagine how chuffed I was, to receive a special thank you certificate!

How chuffed am I? my Thank You certificate from Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

Hi Cynthia,

We baked a Race for Life Cake for a fundraising dinner and dance for Cancer Research, in North London.

Then, just when we thought we were all out of giving, we got a last minute call to donate a cake for an event on Hampstead Heath to celebrate the 100th Birthday for Macmillan Cancer Support.

‘Cynthia really got us out of a bind by producing a fantastic cake and cupcakes with next to no time! They really helped make our event a bit more special and the fact that the disappeared so quickly is a testament to how good they were.’

Baking cakes for these charities is quite a privilege and a great way to offer support.
