We have just announced our exciting new event for 2017 The Great British Jamathon.
Keep the date - Saturday June 17th - it will be a nationwide attempt to make as many jars of jam that we can in 12 hours.
I will be making jam LIVE on Facebook - on the hour every hour - and you can cook along with me wherever you are in the country. We will be raising money for Sue Ryder Hospice Care by sponsorship and selling the jam we make. All funds will be paid directly to a dedicated Just Giving account and automatically forwarded to the charity.
You can take part on your own at home - or - more fun - make up a group of friends and cook together. Or, you could have a workplace event, or school or village hall. Invite friends along to watch on the day and they will probably sponsor you as well - and buy jam! You can carry on making after the event, either for yourself or for the charity, but whatever - keeeep jammin'!
The whole event is especially aimed at beginners so don't think you need expertise or even special equipment, just a big pan and a spoon.
All of the details are on our event website www.jamathon.co.uk and you can register to take part there. There will be information packs and promotional items on Lovejars shortly and we will be putting out regular information as the event builds.
