Buttermilk Confections raises £153 for the Cornwall Air Ambulance
Award-winning fudge manufacturer Buttermilk Confections raised £153 for the Cornwall Air Ambulance after carrying out a prize draw in their Port Isaac shop to win fudge and Doc Martin goodies.
The winner, Petra Marshall from Long Eaton, was touring around Cornwall on holiday but fortunately was contacted by the Buttermilk Confections shop in Port Isaac and claimed her prize within the hour.
Her winning ticket was selected by youngster Isaac Lucas.
Michael Meakins, a Doc Martin 'extra' and organiser of the event at the Buttermilk Shop, handed over the cheque to Julie Thompson from the Air Ambulance base at the Newquay headquarters this week. The fundraiser at the shop which doubles as the Doc's Pharmacy in the popular ITV series was scheduled to take place to coincide with a Doc Martin event in the US on the same day planned by a Washington State-based fan. However, a flood at the tearooms where the event was due to take place in Vancouver, US, meant it has been cancelled until later this year.
