Cirencester waffle house, He Says She Waffles, raises over £700 for local charity
ONE of Cirencester’s most unusual eateries has celebrated its first birthday with a party that raised hundreds of pounds for a local charity.
He Says She Waffles, located in Cirencester’s Black Jack Street, held the anniversary shindig exactly one year from when they first opened their doors to customers.
Gary Groome, who co-owns the waffle house with Michelle Peters, said: “We really appreciate the support we’ve had from all our customers and we wanted to give something back to Cirencester, so we decided to have a big party to raise funds for a local charity.”
The pair managed to raise £750 for the Wiggly Worm charity, which helps to provide disadvantaged people in Gloucestershire with a cooked meal.
Michelle said: “We really love the idea of supporting a food related cause and the fact that the money is going back into Cirencester makes it even more special for us.”
Rob Rees, also known as The Cotswold Chef and the man behind Wiggly Worm, said: “Every two pounds raised at the Waffle Festival will feed one person in food poverty a hot, tasty and nutritious meal while supporting the destruction of the UK’s current nutrition recession.”
The He Says She Waffles party invited customers to a day of waffles, milkshakes, live music and comedy plus a live cookery demonstration by Rob Rees.
Michelle said: "Customers were really generous on the day and we are overwhelmed at how much we raised for charity. We certainly enjoyed the party and we hope that our customers did too."
