Hodder's Angie Willocks reports from London on anniversary of Christchurch quake
We had a Hodder Bake Off here, raising money for Christchurch. It was a great way for me to feel like I was doing something positive, and the generous people at Hodder to feel like they were helping out.
An amazing turn out of cakes, all baked by my wonderful team mates. I went a little Kiwi mad and made ANZAC biscuits, Afghans, and a Boston Bun! Also made Pumpkin and Chocolate chips in honour of my favourite muffins from the Boulevard Bakery in the Arts Centre, which I think is sadly no longer.
I'm going to see the documentary When A City Falls tonight, with a few of my Christchurch friends. I think I'll be needing a big packet of tissues. I can't even imagine what it will be like back home at the moment.
Thanks Angie, I'll bet you needed those tissues, I certainly did. It was an emotion-packed day.
