Odds Blog: Sue’s Bake-a-Thon – the finale!

Posted by indigodream on 31 July, 2015

Friday 31st July

Bake-a-thon Day 3: The finale!

A satisfying end to an epic bake-a-thon :-)

A satisfying end to an epic bake-a-thon 🙂

I’ve done it!

  • 30 years a pharmacist
  • 30 hours baking
  • 30 different recipes
  • 1,766 individual dog treats!

There’s still time to donate to my favourite charities:

  • Greyhoundhomer – a branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust: When I was very young I didn’t want to be a pharmacist, I wanted to be “Julie the kennel maid” and dedicate my life to looking after dogs! My early ambition never really disappeared, so now I’m looking after my eighth rescue dog (my 6th greyhound!) and have dedicated my spare time to supporting the rescue and rehoming of retired greyhounds. Click Here to Sponsor me!
  • Pharmacy Support: a charity dedicated to supporting pharmacists and their families in times of need. Pharmacy Support offers a range of services from financial help though to specialist advice and a confidential “listening friends” helpline. Click Here to sponsor me!

Of course, all these treats will be for sale tomorrow, along with some wonderful human cakes (baked by my friends), my home-made jam, cream teas and a bit of bric-a-brac to browse – come along if you can! 😀

Come along if you can :-)

Come along if you can 🙂

Odds Blog: Sue’s Bake-a-thon

Posted by indigodream on 31 July, 2015

Friday 31st July

Ready for Day 3....

Ready for Day 3….

As of yesterday, I have been registered as a pharmacist for 30 years.

I am celebratng with a fundraising event to support my favourite charities:

  • Greyhoundhomer – a branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust: When I was very young I didn’t want to be a pharmacist, I wanted to be “Julie the kennel maid” and dedicate my life to looking after dogs! My early ambition never really disappeared, so now I’m looking after my eighth rescue dog (my 6th greyhound!) and have dedicated my spare time to supporting the rescue and rehoming of retired greyhounds. Click Here to Sponsor me!
  • Pharmacy Support: a charity dedicated to supporting pharmacists and their families in times of need. Pharmacy Support offers a range of services from financial help though to specialist advice and a confidential “listening friends” helpline. Click Here to sponsor me!

This is the last day of the Bake-a-Thon – so far I’ve baked for 20 hours – that’s 20 different recipes and over 1,300 individual dog treats…

Cheer me on to the finish line by donating to one of my favourite charities – 30 hours baking, 30 recipes – one for each year that I’ve been qualified – it’s going to be a warm day and I’ll need some motivation 😀
