The Day of the Charity ‘Supper Club’ at lunchtime!

We were greeted by yet another beautiful day. I have to say that the day before was such an amazing  sunset that I took a break from cooking and took a few pictures from the garden! 

We took our time getting ready and the car was loaded up by 10.30am for the 30 km  journey. I was only sorry that ‘Ace’ could not come with us – sadly Barbara’s cat did not get on with him!  I promised him a walk when we got back. 

When we got to Barbara and Cedric’s house in Folles we were given the freedom of the kitchen and the dinning room. Thank you again.

Carolyn has hosted two previous Charity supper clubs for us in her home in France  and Saira would have been proud of her as ‘ front of house’. Not only was she responsible for making  the table decorations but did a fantastic job in creating the right ambiance for the ‘lunch ‘ club. She is a ‘quilter’  and loves to play with fabric , colours and her “embellishments”.  Just look at the photos!

Meanwhile I got on with the final preparations of the food.  Twelve wonderful people gathered in Barbara and Cedric’s home by 1pm and were immediately greeted by an ‘ apero’  kindley provided by our hosts.

Everyone was seated by 1.15 pm for the starters and before I could blink it was 4.45 pm and we were getting into the car to leave having raised £140. Thank you everyone – you are a fantastic group of people and you generosity will be going to Cancer Research next week.

Thank you Cedric for the fantastic ‘place mats’!

Thank you Barbara and I promise I will be sending you the spices you need!

A FINAL THANK YOU TO MY FANTASTIC FRIEND CAROLYN WITHOUT WHOM NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE.
