Charity Fundraising Event
Wednesday 3rd September – 6.30pm to 8.30pm
The Glasshouse at Lauriston Castle
Join us for another cake filled evening to support the fantastic It’s Good 2 Give.
The venue for this event will be the Victorian Glasshouse in the grounds of Lauriston Castle. We hope to have the event outdoors, but in the case of inclement weather, we will utilise the beautiful glasshouse. We can’t think of a better way to spend an evening than to take a wander around the grounds and eat cake whilst raising money for charity!
HOW IT WORKS
There are 48 places available for this event, and we know it will sell out, so don’t delay in booking your place.
As this is a charity event, we would like to ask if you lovely ladies and gents could pledge a cake for the evening. Please let us know soonest what type of cake you’d like to pledge (minimum size = 8 slices). We need 24 cakes to make this evening a success.
There will be two types of tickets available for the event, an eater and a baker/eater. Each ticket will entitle you to 4 slices of cake to eat (or takeaway) from our cake menu, plus tea or filter coffee.
Ticket Option 1 – £5 For those who pledge a cake.
Ticket Option 2 – £10 Come as an ‘eater’
Every penny goes to It’s Good 2 Give and to help out families affected by cancer.
If you wish to bring a child along with you, please email us with details of the child’s age (and appetite) to obtain a price for your child’s ticket.
AND THERE’S MORE…….
- Opportunity to purchase cake – all remaining cake will be on sale near to the end of the evening. Why not buy some for your family, or treat your office colleagues the next morning? Bring a box with you to carry your cake purchases home…or in the unlikely event that you cannot eat all your four slices of cake!
- Some great raffle prizes will be up for grabs on the evening!
- Magician, Elliot Bibby will be amazing us with his magic tricks during the evening
- We are honoured that Lynne McNicoll, the founder of the It’s Good 2 Give charity and our caket patron will be joining us on the evening.

If you attend our event, it is your responsibility to ensure you read the label of the cake and ensure that you’re not allergic to any ingredients i.e. nuts etc. If in any doubt, please choose another cake. We have had no incidents of illness in the hundreds thousands of cakes we’ve eaten so far.
It’s always good to eat cake, but even better when it’s for charity.
