We are hosting our final raffle for the year, raising funds for our friend Elizabeth’s ongoing medical costs and living expenses. We are very grateful for everyone’s support this year in helping Elizabeth complete her bucket list trip to Iceland – you can find out more about our earlier fundraising through our previous post.

Two aromatic packs of some very different coffee beans just for you: Colombia is medium strength with a balanced, fruity and sweet flavour, from small farms in Pitalito, in the far South of Huila.

Indulge and save some time over the holidays – you can even tell family and friends that you baked it yourself!

Each homemade cake is a separate prize so you have better odds of winning! Deliciousness guaranteed, because they are all handmade by GLAMR workers.

All the cakes will be made and delivered in the days after the winners are drawn (late afternoon of 16 December). We will contact you to confirm the best delivery time and place (to take place before Xmas day). Please note that delivery is only available in Canberra, Queanbeyan and surrounds.

  • Margaret’s famous boiled fruitcake: Lose yourself in a luxurious blend of raisins, sultanas, currants, cherries and more. Desired by all!
  • Michelle’s famous pecan pie: A delectable flavour journey of star anise, maple syrup, pecans, and eggs from her very own chickens.
  • Liddly’s famous fyrstekake: This traditional and decadent Norwegian almond cake wins the heart of any marzipan fan!
  • Sonja’s famous vegan carrot cake: Moist, nutty and cruelty-free!
