First Cake Bake = a huge success!

As you are (hopefully) all aware, this Friday is Cake Bake day!

That's right, on Friday, people all over the UK (actually all over the world as we know there are people in America participating) will be holding cake sales - some large, some small - to raise money for LLTGL.

To kick-start the whole thing off, gorgeous little William Milne who received his life-saving small bowel transplant only a few months ago, held a cake sale in Birmingham Childrens Hospital, where he is currently still residing.

Abley assisted by his wonderful mum Sarah who keeps a blog of her and William's journey here, William tempted all passers by with delicious treats and managed to raise over £40 - a truly fantastic effort.

We are so grateful to the Milne family for their support, even though they are still living in Hospital so many miles away from home.

We cannot wait to hear more Cakey tales and see more pics of your fab efforts!

Looks great - Wills looks quite the little salesman! Great job :)

We had loads of fun and enjoyed spreading the word about LLTGL among people on both sides of the transplant experience. We didn't need to raise awareness of transplants themselves too much as there are currently at least 5 children on the ward recovering from transplants - thanks to all the hard work in raising awareness, there seem to be quite a few more transplants taking place than is often the case to thanks to LLTGL and their supporters - keep up the good work. We can't wait to help out even more when we (finally) get home.
With loads of love from all the Milnes x x x x
