Cracking Toast Gromit!

2012 saw the launch of Wallace & Gromit’s Big Breakfast. Taking place nationally between 20th-27th April, the event aims to raise funds for sick children in hospitals and hospices across the UK.

On Monday 23rd April between 8am and 10am the Wakefield House Community Committee opened up their very own ‘Wallace’s Toast Bar’ in the Wakefield House kitchen. There was toast (of course), along with a number of toppings such as butter, jam, peanut butter and chocolate spread - mmm. But they didn’t stop there – there was also a selection of other breakfast favourites on offer, such as muffins, croissants and crumpets, as well some amazing home-made goodies.

A donation of £1 per visit to the breakfast bar was required, and we also did our best to fill our ‘Big Breakfast Tea-Pot’ with as much loose change as possible (every little helps!)

‘’We were amazed at the response to our BIG Breakfast Toast Bar. We were busy all morning and learnt a lot about people’s preferred breakfasts! It seems we have a lot of marmite lovers in the office, with that being the favourite topping – closely followed by good old strawberry jam, and unusually our ‘popping candy’ chocolate spread! Mmmmmm’’

Later on, a trolley was loaded with goodies to do the rounds to make sure no-one was left out. A cracking total of £104.97 was raised as a result :)

    I see breakfast and cake are proving to be popular events again this year!
