Every year in Earlsdon Coventry we remember Ben who will be forever 7. Ben passed from a rare from of Childhood Cancer and to remember him during Childhood Cancer Awareness month in September Earlsdon ‘GOES GOLD’. Ben’s favourite flower was Sunflower and many houses, shops, libraries and schools have sunflower displays with gold ribbons.
An awareness raising charity has been established called Pass the Smile which is intended to pass fun and joy across the community in Bens name.
This year, with the help of Fun Palaces, Miss Ellie’s of Coventry is able to offer 10 young people an online sunflower cupcake making tutorial with materials.
The tutorial will be available to everyone though, so if you are able to provide your own materials you are more than welcome to access the tutorial and join in the fun.
Due to Covid restrictions, this will be delivered on a digital platform with the materials available for contactless collection on Saturday morning from Miss Ellie’s HQ.
Full details of participation will be sent to the participants privately with times for collection to enable effective social distancing.
We are already oversubscribed with 11 people participating (2 are sharing a box) and 1 more who will use the tutorial and will provide her own materials. This really is feeling like a proper Fun Palace.
Thanks to Harry, James, Rowan, Ramona, Mia, Abbie, Tessa, Toby, Ella, Caleb, Freddie and Dawn for signing up.
The boxes will be ready to collect from Miss Ellie’s HQ on Saturday 2nd and I cannot wait to see your creations.
The boxes have been ordered, the Community will be told today about this great Fun palace and a rather large shopping trip is planned for tomorrow – get those cake decorators ready to Pass the Smile by making some delicious sunflower cupcakes.
