“We all live in a yellow Subaru”

Stowmarket Lions MacMillan Cancer Support BIG Coffee and Cake Morning – Saturday 15th September 2018 – 10am – 2pm

United Reformed Church Stowmarket

What will you bake ?


Philip Jeffries, owner of Japanese Car Dealership Jeffries of Bacton (Sales) has commissioned a cake to be baked and donated for the Stowmarket Lions MacMillan Cancer Support Fun day on Saturday 15th September at the United Reformed Church Stowmarket between 10am and 2pm with the brief – “We all live in a yellow Subaru”

Philip Jeffries said I am delighted to support this very worthy cause by sponsoring and donating a cake with Glenda Price of Stowmarket Sugarcraft Club who has very kindly and boldly taken up the challenge using a model of a Subaru XV as her guide and the iconic Beatles song of the 60’s as her theme.

The cake had it’s preview at the Bacton Fair on Saturday 4th August in the main marque where it is hoped it will inspire other local businesses, schools, clubs, sports teams and even other local charities to take part and bake and donate a cake which represents who they are or what they do or just bake a cake for a bit of fun; to take along to the United Reformed Church in Stowmarket in September.


Fundraising Chairman Kev Parker said ‘Stowmarket Lions have long supported MacMillan Cancer Support and the fabulous work they do with a wide range of fund raising events including our annual Suffolk Villages, Charity Bike Ride, Ernie Pearce Memorial Charity Boxing Dinner and our annual Charity Golf Day. This year we thought we would do something a bit different and we have Lions, their Partners families and friends all preparing to bake, donate and bring along a cake on the day.


‘We have met the mayor of Stowmarket, Councillor Linda Baxter who will be joining us and supporting us on the day with her consort Mrs Shirley Bonner and one of our local charities run by Michelle Frost who heads up the Charity Jam Pot, a Stowmarket Lions local charity which arranges weekly ‘pop in’ events at the United Reformed Church, will also be there with a cake reflecting her charity – Jam Pot.


‘All proceeds from the suggested donations for teas, coffees and cakes will go to MacMillan Cancer Support but we will also be using the occasion to announce our achievement of reaching a staggering £1million of fund raising for Lions Local Charities since the Lions Club of Stowmarket & District was formed in 1980 and Stowmarket Lions will be commissioning and donating it’s very own £1million cake on the day.


We will be inviting as many local charities, organisations and individuals that we have supported as possible to join us in celebrating this incredible milestone.


If you require any further information, please see our website www.stowmarket-lions.org which has more details as well as local cake makers such as Glenda Price of Stowmarket Sugarcraft Club and ‘Amazing Cakes by Jean’ who have agreed to take commissions from businesses, clubs or individuals who want to sponsor and donate a cake on the day.


Fundraising Chairman Lion Kev Parker concluded ‘we have a spreadsheet of the types and quantities of cakes being baked by fellow Lions, Family and Friends and so the most important thing is that people join us on the day and celebrate the occasion with tea, coffee, cake and a friendly chat – there will be no better time or place to meet your local Lions Club.
