This year’s Bake sale and Coffee Shop took place on Friday 23rd March.
A massive thank you to everyone who supported the event by baking or buying and especially to the volunteers who worked tirelessly on Thursday night from 7pm – 8pm and on Friday from 8.30am until 3.30pm. It is a very long day, but one of the most fun events of the year as the girls are so excited to be involved.
The kitchens of Clontarf were busy the night before
As we have come to expect, the quality and quantity of baking from the girls and their families was extremely high!
We had a steady stream of parents coming to buy baked goods or stopping for a cup of coffee throughout the day but the main excitement (and the most fun for the volunteers) was when the girls came down, class by class, to the hall to make their purchases.
Our savvy shoppers perused all the goods before making their final choices and also took their chances at one or more of the competitions on offer.
