Eating Cake For Rosie May

I've had a brilliant bank holiday weekend. I've spent it at home with family and friends, there's been baking, running, relaxing and also writing. It's been lovely! I rounded it up today by going to an old family friend's house with mum for a charity fundraiser tea party, in aid of the Rosie May Foundation.

The Rosie May Foundation was set up following the murder of Rosie May and the near death of her family the following Christmas in the Maldives. The charity donated £11,000 to the Sheffield Children's Hospital on the first anniversary of Rosie May's death and has since led to a number of projects based in Sri Lanka - such as the Rosie May Home, which houses and supports young Sri Lankan girls in crisis.

It's always so humbling and inspiring to hear about positive movements like this come out of something so tragic, and it's great to have a chance to support a charity like this. My mum's friend who hosted the fundraiser was actually on call at the hospital the night of Rosie May's death, so it's a cause very close to her heart.

Everyone brought cake, the table was laid, tea was poured (closely followed by prosecco!) and we feasted.

A great afternoon raising money for a good cause and catching up with old friends. If you would like to make a donation you can do so here.

What did you do over the bank holiday?
