Chocolate boost for SWR Mind

9th December 2015

A top Scarborough chocolatier shared his secrets of how to make delicious chocolate treats at a Christmas-themed fund-raiser – and we got to eat them too.

Alex Grant of Crofts Chocolates hosted the demonstration event on Thursday 26 November at the Filling Station at Scarborough’s The Street in Lower Clark Street.

Around 40 chocolate-lovers learnt how to make tasty Christmas decorations and delicious desserts raising £200 for SWR Mind.

Corinne Clancy, administrator at SWR Mind who attended the night said: “The turnout was great and everyone had a brilliant time. Alex was very entertaining and we all got a real insight into the intricacies of making chocolate.

“We were amazed at the effort that goes into it and people were really interested.”

Prior to the event, our fantastic volunteer Julie Blackett sold tickets at the Street and in several days collected £120 in donations from the public.

Corrine: “We’d like to say a big thank you to Alex for putting on such a wonderful show, to Becky at the Filling Station for keeping the café open and of course to Julie for everything she did – she’s a star.”
