MORE than £1,000 was raised for two local charities after Bromsgrove’s Butcher’s Block held its third anniversary charity day.
After the lockdown and restrictions, the all-female team of Lilith and Michelle Holsey Sheppard pulled out all the stops to put on an ‘old fashioned knees up’ in the town.
East Midlands singing sensation Lizzy Rushby wowed the crowds with her array of singalong favourites that kept the crowd smiling even during the rain.
Lil’s Baps were back on Bromsgrove Market in return for donations and there was a raffle and guess the weight of the cake, taking £600 on the day.
The Tewkesbury Mustard Company and Loopy’s Pickled offered tasters of products exclusive to Butcher’s Block and Hairs and Graces provided a voucher for the raffle.
Lilith said: “It was great to be back out on the market doing what I do best.
“Each year the community blows us away with their support for local causes, we want to thank everyone who helped us reach our goal of £1000 this year.”
Butcher’s Block started their annual event on its very first birthday.
Michelle added: “We just wanted to give a little something back to the community that’s stuck with us when we took over.
“Each day we go home with a huge smile on our faces, that’s says it all really.”
The £1,000 to be split between Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide Bromsgrove and North Worcestershire Basement Project.
