On Sunday 14th October, Crêpe de la Crêpe had the privilege of taking part in Champneys Challenge, the 10k Hike, Bike and Run Event at Champneys Tring. Despite the downpour, hundreds of charitable participants turned-up to make it a day to remember. The event kicked off with a warm up, hosted by the astrologer legend ‘Russell Grant’. He geared everyone up, ready to take on the challenge. With his bending and stretching techniques, we could hear lots of giggling and banter amongst the contestants.
Then who should I hear amongst the crowd………. It was the deep voice, and laughter from the legend himself, ‘Frank Bruno’. He came over to our creperie bearing a super smile whilst ordering his crepe, I made sure it was an extra-large one! I couldn’t resist the opportunity of having our photograph taken together.
Champneys Challenge raised a staggering £50,000 for their chosen charities: Alzheimer’s Research UK and Crisis UK. Well done to everyone who took part, you really are truly super!
New Renault and Dacia Showroom Grand Opening in Cambridge
On Friday 31st August, we had the privilege of catering for the staff and VIP customers of John Banks Group, for the grand opening of their largest Renault Showroom in the UK, and bigger and better Dacia Showroom, both based in Cambridge. During this magnificent evening there were chilled refreshments, our sweet and savoury crepes, a very talented accordionist who set a wonderful French ambience throughout the event, and a caricaturist whose talent of capturing his subjects’ ‘best features’ were second to none. Renault’s latest car showroom opening was a huge success, with their customers placing orders on Renault’s latest cars throughout the evening, plus getting the chance to test-drive Renault’s quirky two-seat Electric Twizy, and not forgetting the chance to win a brand-new Renault Clio!
You can now visit Renault’s ‘New State of the Art’ car showroom, based in Swanns Road, Cambridge. Get the chance to test drive their latest models, and speak to their friendly team.
On the 1st July 2019, we had the pleasure and privilege of cooking our crepes for the ‘The London Bridges Walk’; an annual charity event for Kidney Research UK. The charity walk started and finished within the charming Potters Fields Park, which is a small grassed riverside park located South-West of the iconic Tower Bridge, with sweeping views of the river. This year’s charity walk consisted of hundreds of selfless participants, that manage to turn London purple with their brightly coloured purple tops, headpieces and accessories, whilst they made their way across London’s most famous bridges. This popular charity walk is approximately 7 miles long, and took place during UK’s blistering heatwave. Thousands of inflated purple balloons could be seen floating across Tower Bridge in their droves, whilst being held by the participants, and raising thousands of pounds for Kidney Research UK.
Kidney disease is a silent killer, and with monies raised from Kidney Research UK charity events, and the generosity of everyone involved, it is now estimated that every year, 60,000 people with kidney failure are alive today, due to the advances in research that Kidney Research UK has directly contributed to.
Everyone involved had an amazing day, and I would like to thank Kidney Research UK for asking us to be a part of your special fundraising day; what a privilege it was!
