Two sisters who are affected by cardiomyopathy are holding cooking parties that will raise funds for the CMA.
Pauline Cave (pictured above) and Penny Whittaker are consultants with Pampered Chef, an American company that sells cooking products.
The women will be hosting regular fundraising cooking demonstrations where guests will learn how to prepare simple dishes with Pampered Chef cooking tools and taste them.
Penny, who is pictured at a cooking demonstation at Wallington Library, said: “You'll have fun, meet new people, and contribute to the CMA. Bring a friend and receive a free cookbook.”
The first two shows will be held at Pauline's home in Sanderstead, South Croydon at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, June 19th, and at 11am on Thursday, June 21st.
To book a place, call Pauline on 07956 148210.
A percentage of all sales will go to the CMA, the percentage amount depending on the volume sold. But there will also be a raffle for the CMA, and a buy a square game where 50 per cent of the takings goes to the CMA.
Pauline was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy 16 years ago when her son was 11 weeks old. Penny was found to be affected after being involved in a car accident.
Penny said: “My twin sister considers herself lucky to have survived a scary experience of suffering from advanced heart failure 16 years ago - no small thanks to the help and support provided by medical professionals and the CMA.
“The CMA depends heavily on donations and we feel that it is time that we did something to help raise funds.”
Pauline and Penny are planning to hold five shows at Pauline’s home this year to support the CMA. Anyone who cannot make the shows can order products online.
