Hungry Caterpillars received a £150 donation from Nisa Local

The Lewsey Farm convenience store donated the money from it’s carrier bag charges.

Store manager, Scott Jell, said: “Since the carrier bag charge was introduced we have always donated any profits to a local charity or good cause.

“Our customers voted online, I’m glad the money has gone to a local good cause.”

The group is based at St Hugh’s Church and sessions are Fridays from 9.30am till 11am, term time only.

Shelley Whitney, founder of the organisation, started the group in September to help encourage parents and children to cook healthy and simple meals, she said: “I really appreciate the donation from the shop, it will really help us.

“It will allow us to buy new toys for the children, which we desperately need, and cooking equipment, which means we can try out new recipes.”
