Rustenburg – It was a festive celebration of colour on Saturday 29 September when Cupcakes of HOPE hosted its national Cupcake Day 4 Kids with Cancer at the Waterfall Mall’s centre court.

A variety of unique cupcakes to choose form, all made with love, was gobbled up by young and old.
This event is a community driven project where volunteers ‘bake’ a difference in the lives of children with cancer by donating cupcakes.

Their mission is to raise awareness of childhood cancer and funds for kids with cancer who need medical and financial assistance. 

Cupcakes of HOPE assist up to 70 cancer patients every month by donating financially towards their medical treatments or other day-to-day expenses like food, clothing and transport for hospital visits.

The day was a huge success and every cupcake sold will make a difference in the lives of these kids.
