We will be publishing our very own recipe book “The Right Blend” in 2014. We hope to have a range of recipes to suit everyone, and we need your help! If you have a favourite, and well tested recipe you would like us to include in the book, please forward it to any committee member as soon as possible. If you have any celebrity friends, please ask them for a recipe, together will a word or two about the person themselves. This will make our recipe book just that wee bit more special than other charity recipe books on sale. We also hope to include recipes from local businesses, and supporters of our group.
