Christmas shoppers enjoy mulled wine on March Market Place as fund raiser serves drink at second attempt
SCORES of Christmas shoppers have been kept warm on March market place this morning, as a determined fund raiser finally got the chance to served mulled wine on her Help the Heroes charity stall.
Debbie Smith’s original attempt to serve the drink on her first stall two weeks ago was foiled by council licensing laws.
But Fenland District Council granted her a second opportunity to serve the wine, ensuring that she had all the paperwork needed for today’s stall.
“It’s been going very well,” said Mrs Smith. “It’s great to finally serve people the drink - there was a lady this morning who had loads! We’re certainly warming people up.
“There was obviously a strength of feeling about this and I’m happy that it’s all sorted now. I’ve been given a certificate from Help the Heroes as a thank you for the fund raising.”
