As you may know, last week I spent my days down South in London. When I arrived home at 3am on Thursday morning, I arrived to a very secret package. I knew I'd not ordered anything because well...I have no money, so I was super excited to rip the packaging open to find out what I'd been sent!
It turns out that I had been sent a very special package from my favourite popcorn company of all time! It was a "sneak peak" of their latest partnership with the leading children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Basically the wonderful Metcalfe's Skinny company has pledged to raise over £30,000 for CLIC Sargent to raise money for children and young people suffering with cancer. They are doing this by rebranding their extremely popular "Sea Salt" popcorn to "CLIC Sargent Salt".
The launch was yesterday at one of CLIC Sargent's "Homes From Home" in London which was a super brilliant popcorn party for those living with cancer and their families (God I wish I'd been invited - popcorn party?! Sounds amazing!) From now on every pack of CLIC Sargent Salt sold, Metcalfe Skinny will make a donation to the charity and the funds raised could pay for vital services such as 1,000 nights in one of CLIC Sargent's Homes From Home, which provide free self-catering accommodation near to specialist hospitals.
Cancer is a terrible disease and every day, 10 children and young people in the UK find out that they have cancer. Treatment normally start's immediately but is often given many miles from home and can last up to three years. Although survival rates are over 80%, cancer still remains the largest cause of death from disease in children and youngsters in the UK.
The whole partnership sounds absolutely fantastic and it's something that I fully support, especially after losing a lot of people recently to cancer. I know for a fact that we all know or knew someone who has been suffering with cancer, so it's such a great feeling to be able to support something like this - and all you have to do is buy a bag of delicious popcorn! Trust me, the popcorn is really and truly delicious! I've reviewed some of Metcalfe's Skinny's products many times and I am a serious admirer of everything that they have brought out.
You can buy Metcalfe's Skinny CLIC Sargent Salt Topcorn in places like Sainsbury's, Tesco's and Primark's (to name a few) and at only 79p for a small bag and £1.59 for a large bag you can't really say no!
More About Metcalfe's Skinny
"Metcalfe’s skinny is on a mission to rustle up healthier alternatives to crisps, cakes and cookies. A growing range of delicious and light corn-based healthy snacks made with top quality ingredients and limitless love and care. It all started with a POP. As the Co Founder of Pret & itsu, Julian Metcalfe is obsessed with delicious and healthy food. Back in 2009 he was fed up of stodgy snacks that weighed him down and he wanted to create something that was light yet tasty to replace the bog standard crisp. Popcorn was the perfect fit & Metcalfe’s skinny Topcorn was born. After experimenting with dozens of flavours & varieties (not to mention a run in with a chocolate drizzle machine), Julian came up with the perfect recipe for freshly popped butterfly popcorn tumbled with Metcalfe’s skinny's unique flavours & seasoning. Pret was the first place that stocked the magic stuff and from there, the company quickly gathered a growing legion of fans. Metcalfe’s skinny Topcorn is now one of the most loved popcorn brands in the UK."
