St Peter's Church, Whatcote Fund Raising - Xmas 2003

This Christmas we are again raising funds for the Restoration and Alterations to St. Peterís.

We would like you to contribute to this fund and now youíre in luck.  Weíve got something a lot tastier than a raffle ticket.  Weíve got the Ultimate Plum Pudding.  Christmas puddings are on most familyís shopping list in December.  The Ultimate Plum Pudding is probably the finest Christmas pudding you can buy.  It has been endorsed by the BBC Good Food Magazine and by Chef magazine as being as good as the best home made.  It is used by top chefs and sold as prestigious private labels throughout the country

The pudding is virtually hand made by a very small craft manufacturer in Cumbria .  All the vine fruits are soaked in plenty of brandy and dry sherry.  Fresh breadcrumbs and freshly grated carrot help give the pudding a distinctly northern style being lighter, less bitter, and having a wider variety of luxury ingredients than many other puddings.  Most people have no idea that Christmas pudding can be this good.

The Ultimate Plum Pudding is not available in supermarkets, (the company is too small for that), but it is available through us.  We have had the pudding attractively labelled especially for us.  Our label incorporates a picture of our church and also states that the sale of the pudding supports the church. Our suppliers costs have risen slightly this year.  Each order for a 1lb. pudding (serves 4) now costs £5.00 and raises at least £2.13 for us.  A 2lb. (serves 8) costs £8.30 and raises at least £3.29.  (We get bigger discounts the more you order).  Pudding prices are comparable with the best puddings available from retail shops.  Our ordering direct from the manufacturer allows there to be a good profit for us within a very competitive retail price.

Itís a great pudding.  Youíll love it.  Your friends will love it.  Itís so easy to order from us and it raises money for St. Peterís.  It has to be worthwhile.  Copy and fill in the order form and send it back now.  Last date for orders is 5th December 

Puddings can be ordered and then collected from:
