Fairhaven Garden Knit & Natter Club Knit Cakes for Big C Big Cuppa

Fairhaven Garden's Wednesday morning Knit & Natter Club has been busy knitting cakes for the Big C. The group has produced everything from woolly swiss rolls to doughnuts.

The ‘cakes’ will be sold at Fairhaven Garden tearoom's Big Cuppa event Thursday, May 12, 3.30pm to 5pm for £2.50 each. As well as the knitted cakes the tearoom will be selling the real thing – a specially made teapot cupcake, exclusive to Fairhaven, made by local baker Fiona Eastoe, with a cup of tea or coffee for £3.25. There will also be a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses including tickets to Merrivale Model Village, Thrigby Hall and Gooderstone Water Gardens.

Money raised from the event will go to the Big C. Big C funds equipment locally, providing support and care for the people of Norfolk and Waveney affected by cancer as well as funding world class research
Linda Moore from the Knit & Knatter Club said: “The club is worth getting up for on a Wednesday morning. It's been great fun. You never know who you will meet. Discussions range far and wide."
