Pancake-flipping fundraiser at Farmers Fayre

Pancake-flipping fundraiser at Farmers Fayre

Pictured, from left to right, are Nicola Enoch, founder of The Ups of Downs with Isaac Reeves, aged three, Rachel Willmott with her daughter Ella, aged four, and Sarah Reeves with her 15-month-old daughter Delilah, and Josh Hewitt-Parsons, chef at Farmers Fayre, and Nicola Reece, director at Farmers Fayre.

A Warwickshire farm shop and kitchen’s year of fundraising for a local charity supporting children with Down syndrome and their families has got off to a pancake-flipping start.

Farmers Fayre at Stoneleigh Park hosted the fundraiser on Shrove Tuesday for The Ups of Downs, which is based in Leamington and works throughout Warwickshire and surrounding counties.

Customers including people working at businesses and organisations based at Stoneleigh Park entered into the spirit by flipping dozens of freshly-made pancakes with donations reaching just under £150.

Nicola Reece, director of Farmers Fayre, said:

We ran a poll on social media to choose our charity of the year and had 2,000 votes with The Ups of Downs coming out on top.
We’re delighted to be supporting the charity as they provide such valuable support to local families and our target is to raise £5,000 during the year.
The pancake flipping got us off to a great start and our next fundraiser will be a rowing relay on World Down Syndrome Day on March 21 when teams at Stoneleigh Park will compete to row the 21 miles of the English Channel the fastest.

The Ups of Downs was founded in 2006 by Nicola Enoch when her son, Tom, who has Down syndrome was almost 18 months old.

It aims to empower parents to give their child with Down syndrome every opportunity to develop, flourish and achieve, by providing them with the knowledge, confidence, ability and resources.

The group has grown to more than 70 families and runs weekly groups for members from birth through to teenagers, as well as additional activities including monthly meetings at Wren Day Nursery, also based at Stoneleigh Park.

Founder Nicola said:

We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as Farmers Fayre’s charity of the year. It’s a tremendous show of support for The Ups of Downs which is very much a local charity working with families in Warwickshire.
We’re really looking forward to working with Nicola and her fabulous team not only to raise funds to continue providing the extensive range of activities for our members and their families, but also to raise awareness about Down syndrome, hopefully dispelling some of the outdated perceptions and images that people may have.

The annual Stoneleigh Park rounders tournament organised by Farmers Fayre will also raise money for The Ups of Downs when it takes place on July 18. Proceeds from a raffle at the annual festive fayre on December 5 will also go to the charity.
