At a busy Alnwick Food Festival over the weekend, a little star power from chef Jean-Christophe Novelli helped bring in more than £500 for the Jam Jar Army.
Jam jars collecting change were on most of the 50-plus producers’ stalls and TV celebrity Jean-Christophe was happy to get behind our campaign supporting a local cause – Alnwick Playhouse Youth Theatre.
Anyone who wanted a photo taken with him was asked to make a donation to the Army.
And in total, the Food Festival weekend brought in £528.33, taking the total past the £9,000 mark to £9,392.19.
Get in touch – on 01665 602234 or email@example.com – if you want to get involved or have any ideas for fund-raising. Full jars can be dropped off at the Playhouse or the Gazette office on Bondgate Without, or the Lions bookshop on Bondgate Within.
