It’s time to decide how YOU’RE going to celebrate the first ever Cathy Cassidy National Best Friends Day… so you’re ready to join in the fun when July 4th rolls around! NBFD has kind of grown out of the annual My Best Friend Rocks comp… it’s a way EVERYONE can get together and celebrate friendship… with a little bit of cake stirred in for good measure, of course!

So… what do you need to do?

1. Check out the new NBFD page on the website and start planning your own party/picnic/sleepover for NBFD! There are lots of ideas, plus some cool downloads… everything you need to create your own extra-cool NBFD event! It’s all about friendship, fun, laughter… and cake! What’s not to like?

2. Join the Friendship Charter Challenge! I’d like 20,000 people to sign up to the CC Friendship Charter before NBFD 2010… it’s the perfect way to keep your friendship strong and show your best friends just how much they mean to you. Tell your classmates about it, too… let’s start off a friendship frenzy!!!

3. Come along to Waterstones, Piccadilly, London between 1-3-pm on NBFD itself, July 4th… and celebrate NBFD with ME!!! I will be signing copies of my new book Angel Cake, unveiling a giant Friendship Charte and launching NBFD in style! There will be Friendship Festival events, Random Acts of Kindness goodies and lots of yummy surprises… the event is free, so come along with your friends and celebrate NBFD with me!

What are you waiting for? Let me know how YOU’LL be celebrating… and spread the word!!!



  1. NBFD is on my school’s Speech Day and I’m having a picnic with my 2 BFs! I’m making special cakes and will get a piccie to show you! I’ll give choccies out to everyone on the 3rd!

  8. hi Cathy!!!
    (again) can’t wait till angel cake comes out!!!
    i’m buying daizy star, too! I like your section on the site for it, I love browsing and reading about all the characters. but mostly i love the activities and recipes! why don’t you make one for each of the books you’ve wrote? please write loads of books as i love them all! By the way i’m hopefully gonna get a friend (and fan of yours) or two, to come round, bake a huge batch of gingersnaps cookiestogether, and have a bbq, while chatting about your books, and doing quizzes and stuff off the website. CANNOT WAIT TILL the 4th!!
    love Josie x

    . How long has NBFD been going on for?

    .Why did you invent NBFD?
    .What have you done for NBFD in the past?
    . Have you got any other important info that would help us?
    From Mollie, Ailis, Megan and Hannah (BFFL) x
