IT happens every year: August is a burn out, in more ways than one, and then BOOM! The weather changes and we’re straight back on the Mallorca merry-go-round of charity events and get togethers. I’ve got to admit, I do love our island for that.
Next Friday I am helping to organise ‘Mallorca’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ which will be at Mood Beach in Costa D’en Blanes and is in aid of the cancer organisations on the island. It’s only 5€ per person which gives you a cup of coffee, a slice of cake, and a nice warm glow. You can bring friends, or make some when you get there as it’s normally quite busy. Doors open at 11am and it goes on until 1pm.
Izzy Newman will be singing and being her lovely self, there will be cake competitions (thankfully for my waistline I am not a judge) which you can enter if you would like to. The categories will be Best: chocolate, sponge, fruit, cupcake or decorated, and you need to bring your creation to the venue between 10 and 10.30am on the day. Also donations of cakes are welcomed for the ravaging hordes!
We’ve also got a fine offering of prizes for the best cakes, and some excellent raffle prizes as well. I have all of these in my hot little hands, I’m trying to figure out which ones I am going to ‘lose’ and keep for myself, heh heh heh! So please make sure you come along on Friday and support the event. There is another reason why this event is a special one for me. It’s going to be the last event that I do at Mood as I have resigned from my position there as PR and I’m going to be moving on to new projects.
It’s an exciting time for me. I will be working most of the time as a photographer with my husband Oliver Neilson in our business Phoenix Media. We take photos of the interiors of houses, boats, weddings, events, people, animals, food and products. In fact, we can pretty much cover everything you need. Last week I spent three intense days shooting the photos for a school in Mallorca, then went to a British Council event and took their photos and then went on to a performance in the Pirates theatre and covered that for them. Crazy days for me.
But I’ve always had a soft, cake-shaped spot in my heart for the charity and community events that I have organised at Mood, so it is fitting that on my very last day there that we have the Coffee Morning. Please come along and support it, I’d love to break our record for how many people attended. www.mallorcamatters.com
