I would like to thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your generosity.
Thanks to the money raised within the DS (938,68 €), as well as the action taken by the very willing volunteers from the DS, Legal Service and the EUREST team, an extra 1.672,26 € was raised by our cake bake sale in the Berlaymont (Piazza) on Monday.

A cheque for the grand total of 2.610,94 € was presented to Roy Edwards, President of the Cancer Support Group, for Sandra.
The attached (avant-premiere!) photo will be soon be published on the http://www.cancer-support.eu/en

Monday you tasted home-made tortilla and sangria prepared by Maria and Maria Garcia Lavandera (SJ), admired and tasted a range of over 360 cupcakes, 50 pannacottas, chocolate cake, bread and apple pie baked by our amateur cooks (Anna, Colleen, Monika, Rafael, Tobias’s Mum & myself) and assisted by the professional, Joelle Van Loven (EUREST).

 

My thanks also go to Alain Lhermite, District Manager EUREST, for kindly agreeing to let Franco Golisano (Head Chef) assist us and also for the loan of material that made the sale possible!

Last, but not least, I could not forget to thank our wonderful sales team (Angélique, Isabella, Roy, Sabrina & Violanda).

Thanks to you all the event was a huge success.

 

I will, of course, keep you all updated on Sandra’s progress.
