If you were in Blakeney on 27th August you may have been pleasantly refreshed.
Matt Mumford and his 10-year old daughter, Saskia, were offering home made lemonade and chocolate brownies outside Matt’s aunt’s house on the High Street to raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) Nook Appeal.
Last year Matt and Saskia ran a similar stall, raising £261 for EACH on that occasion. With EACH balloons and banners adorning the house and the sun shining, Matt and Saskia happily served refreshments to the community.
“We had a wonderful (but tiring!) day running our lemonade stand to raise money for EACH’s Nook appeal,” explained Matt.
“We handed out roughly 250 glasses of lemonade made using our secret recipe (3 whole lemons, blitzed with 5 teaspoons caster sugar per litre of water!). We also had homemade organic chocolate brownie bites which were very popular and completely went.
“We were joined on the day by a couple of local eager helpers, Amelia, Rufus and Vita, and of course by my auntie and uncle, Pauline and Rob Francis from whose driveway we held our stand.”
The good people of Blakeney and visitors to to the village raised an amazing £324.21 on the day.
