Back in 2016, Duncan and Sue Keir, along with Cathi and John Grainger started a fundraising initiative to make cake stands from donated plates that could be converted to cake stands.
“Duncan the Drill” set about experimenting with various plates and decided that porcelain gave the best results. After acquiring donated plates and some purchased from charity shops, a stock of various designs was constructed in an effort to cover every possible market need.
Our thanks go to all those involved in making this little project a success particularly those that bought one and those who actively helped source markets at which to sell them. So far £300 has been raised for branch funds.
There are some still available for sale and we can also convert any plates you may have into a cake stand to match an existing set. The smaller stands make perfect presents for children who like to bake! Prices range from £10 – £15.
Please contact Cathi Grainger on 01494 715530 if you would like to purchase one.
