A BROMSGROVE coffee shop will be celebrating its fifth birthday by raising funds for town charity Libby Mae’s Little Angels.
Plaza Coffee will kick off the activities on Friday (November 14) with ‘The Great Plaza Bake-Off’ which will see owner Devina and the five members of her team baking cupcakes.
Four regular customers will judge the creations and each one will be sold off for £1 afterwards.
There will also be a birthday card competition for youngsters to take part in. Entrants have been dropping off their handmade cards and the winner will be chosen this afternoon (Friday). Parents of the entrants are urged to put a small donation into the collection box on the counter. There will be a chocolatey prize awaiting the winner.
Talented musician Mark Barrett will also be at the cafe at 4pm this afternoon to play acoustic covers from the 1960s to the present day, along with some of his own songs.
And there will be a raffle as well – the draw for that will be 5pm.
Libby Mae’s Little Angels was started by Bromsgrove couple Charlotte and Richard Sharratt in memory of their daughter Libby Mae who was born at Birmingham Women’s Hospital on April 26, but passed away two weeks later.
Libby Mae had a rare condition whereby a vein between her left lung and her heart did not develop properly.
Since then the charity has raised £100,000 for the cause.
Charlotte said: “We are honoured that yet another Bromsgrove business has chosen to support our fantastic charity and hope the event will raise even more awareness along with vital funds to help us save more babies’ lives throughout our region.”
