Charity

Part of the drive to set up our small business was to be able to support the charities that lie close to our hearts. 

So far, since we started our business in September 2021, we are very proud to have raised an incredible £4930 for charities. 

Thank you to everyone who has bought an ice cream, donated cash, or supported us in any way to help raise as much money as possible, especially to Doddington Dairy who frequently donate ice creams to help maximise profits.
