We have a very exciting and truly delicious cake to be won thanks to our wonderful supporters and huge Cliff Richard fans, Teressa, Pat and Leticia! 50 years ago Teressa and her two friends, Pat and Leticia bunked off school to queue for tickets to see Cliff Richard in Glasgow. This was the first step in a journey that resulted in a mention in the papers at the time and they also got to meet Cliff himself! In total the ladies have now met him three times and on one of these occasions they presented him with a cake.
The fans are reuniting this week from England, France and Australia to attend his 75th birthday concert in Glasgow together with the hope that they can meet him again!
Teressa’s daughter has also been involved as she has made a stunning cake creation in honour of this occasion with the highest suggested donation for the cake going to Beatson Cancer Charity. The Beatson is very close to the hearts of the ladies as Teressa’s sister in law Anne Goodwin sadly lost her battle with cancer recently. All three of the ladies have been touched by cancer, either personally or immediate family, so this is truly poignant for them all.
The three of them have commissioned this cake to reflect Cliff's loves and life, so the film strip has charity photos, copies of platinum disks, him at his amazing vineyard and much more! The entirely chocolate Bus is an almost exact replica of the one from the film “Summer Holiday” and the house and gate are his estate in Portugal, and the vineyard is nestled in there too.
The cake is a yummy chocolate fudge cake and will feed 35-40 people – altogether it took 23 hours to make!
The cake can be yours by suggesting the highest donation for it. If you’d like to win this delicious cake which is just in time for Big Beatson Bake Off and support Beatson Cancer Charity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details and your suggested donation and we’ll be in touch if you’re the winner! Closing date for all suggested donations is Monday 12th October, Noon. Good luck and a huge thanks to Teressa, Pat and Leticia! We hope you have a wonderful time at Cliff’s concert and thank you so much for your continued support in memory of Anne Goodwin. We are so grateful for everything you’ve done for Beatson Cancer Charity.
