Rumwell Farm Shop is hosting a Rumwell by Candlelight event from 5pm until 8pm on Thursday 10 December to raise money for two local charities – Somerset Sight and bibic.
Anne Mitchell, joint owner of the Rumwell Farm Shop and Café, said: “For this event the shop will be lit by hundreds of candles to create a unique shopping experience. Representatives from Somerset Sight and bibic will be there to chat to people about what they do and there’ll be collection buckets throughout the farm shop for people to leave their spare change.
“It’s a chance too for shoppers to try lots of tasty food items made in our bakery and jam kitchen. Regional wine suppliers Cellarmarque will be attending and Bramley and Gage Liqueur Makers will be here with samples of their gin. One of our chocolate suppliers, A-lot-of-Choc, will be on-site too. Admission and parking is free.”
There’s free mulled wine and a mince pie for shoppers on arrival and The Somerset Hills Ladies Choir, The RiverTones acapella choir, and 21-year-old solo singer Camellia Sinclair will be there to provide entertainment.
Somerset Sight is an independent charity based in Taunton providing services, training and leisure activities for sight-impaired people throughout the county. It aims to help maintain independence and improve quality of life. bibic helps children and young people from six months to 18 years suffering from conditions affecting development and learning ability to achieve their potential. bibic’s national assessment centre is in Langport.
