Cooking up something special

I’ve been thinking about how to raise money for my Malawi Mission in aid of AMECA. Just tweeting and Facebooking the relevant links has done a pretty good job so far (I’m already at 40% of my target thanks to the wonderful people who have donated already) but I figure I’ll need to put in some extra effort to raise the rest. If you’ve any creative suggestions about how I can help raise more money for AMECA please leave a comment. 🙂

One idea I had was to inflict my culinary skills on people in exchange for money. I enjoy cooking and, although not sophisticated about it, I think I’m OK. But I’m not really a baker. This evening I set about trying to change that, and make some rather nice chocolate orange biscuits. These were a trial run, but on this evidence it might be worth pursuing!



Chocolate orange biscuits


Last week I wrote about how I’m giving away tickets to the official Doctor Who convention this month. Well, absolutely no-one has donated yet, so it’s basically an open goal if anyone wants to go for it! This week the BBC announced some extra guests for Sunday 24th, the day of these tickets:

  • Maureen O’Brien (Vicki)
  • Peter Purves (Steven)
  • Wendy Padbury (Zoe)
  • John Leeson (voice of K-9)
  • Lalla Ward (Romana II)
  • Mark Strickson (Turlough)
  • Bonnie Langford (Mel)
  • Michael Kilgarriff (Cyber Controller)
  • Julian Glover (Richard I/Scaroth)
  • Stephen Thorne (Omega/Azal/Kastrian Eldrad)
  • David Graham (Dalek voices/Kerensky)
  • Donald Tosh (script editor/writer)
  • Anthony Read (script editor/writer)
  • Andrew Cartmel (script editor/writer)
  • Andrew Morgan (director)

That’s in addition to the various Doctors and companions already announced, including Matt Smith and Sylvester McCoy. Go enter!
