An Ipswich ceramic café is donating 50p for every large ceramic bauble they sell this festive season to a local disability charity.
Pennikkity Pots, in Crown and Anchor Mews, is donating the funds to Papworth Trust, which supports local disabled people through services such as its two learning and leisure centres in Ipswich.
The large handprint baubles, which are £11 each, can be personalised and decorated in the cafe. A popular option is to feature a baby’s hand or footprint on the bauble, as a Christmas present for grandparents or family members.
Nikki Shepherd, who is the co-owner of Pennikkity Pots, said, “We are taking part in Papworth Trust’s Suffolk Accumulator Challenge; we’ve been given £50 and set a challenge to turn it into as much money as we can. Our idea is that for every large bauble sold in the café, we will donate 50p to the Trust.
“The baubles are our biggest seller at Christmas, so hopefully this will be a good way of raising funds to support disabled people in our area. They make a lovely sentimental gift that you can treasure for many years to come.”
Pennikkity Pots is open seven days a week and is located in between the back entrances of Debenhams and Marks and Spencer. To find out more please call 01473 216 865 or go to www.pennikkitypots.co.uk
