We did it
On 17th October 2013 we successfully raised £746 with 43 supporters in 28 days

I am 7 years old and have raised £746. My target was only £450 so that is just amazing, thank you so much. I have had a brilliant time doing crowdfunding.

My Cracking Good Recipes book was printed at the end of November and I've been selling them on my web site www.crackinggoodrecipes.org.uk and at local events to raise money for the Wallace & Gromit's Children's Charity.

The charity are really special because they help children who are poorly in hospitals and hospices across the UK. You can read about their work at www.wallaceandgromitfoundation.org I have been supporting them since I was three years old by doing things like having a tea party, doing a 5 mile bike ride when I was 4, and running a lemonade stand.

I love cooking and helping mum in the kitchen. I  have lots of different cook books but this one is really special.  There are photos of the food and photos of art that I have done at school or at home to show the different seasons, because all the recipes are written in seasons. 

Cauliflower Books printed my recipe book and gave me a special price so that I could make more money. I'm not very good at big numbers but I though we should sell them for £6 each.  All the money left over from my Crowdfunding project after I have paid for the books will go to the charity.

Thank you so much for reading all about my project, and thank you for supporting me. I am writing updates on my web site now www.crackinggoodrecipes.org.uk so I look forward to seeing you over there.
