Don’t fancy baking? Don’t worry come down at 1pm. We’ll be having a tombola packed with  amazing chocolate treats and something special from one of our judges.  You can also have a go at the how many chocolates game- everyone can get involved. Plus you can buy all of the entries.


The important bit! To see why what a big difference you can make please watch this short video from The Norman family, about their daughter Elsie. £30 will give a family a room for the night when they need it the most.
