A Derbyshire good cause has emerged a winner from the sale of a World Cup range of sausages and burgers at Croots Farm Shop after more than £300 was raised for Treats Children’s Charity.
Stoke City player Rory Delap helped kick off the charity fund-raising effort at the Duffield farm shop just before the World Cup got underway.
Ten per cent from the sale of the Bangerooney, WAG, and Three Lions sausages and the Johanna’s Burgers throughout the football tournament was donated to the Derbyshire-based children’s charity.
Now it’s been announced that £310 has been collected for Treats, which was launched more than 22 years ago by a group of professional businesswomen in Derbyshire to raise money for the children of Derbyshire and the surrounding region.
“Our customers really got behind our fund-raising effort for Treats and I’m delighted that we raised more than £300 for the charity,” said Steve Croot, who runs Croots Farm Shop & Kitchen at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road.
Croots is renowned for its sausages, and created the World Cup range especially to raise money for Treats, which is the shop’s chosen charity of the year.
