A kind-hearted teenager from Witchford is hoping to raise money for local charities by selling homemade lollipops during her school holiday.
Tashi Marley is making ‘Positive Pops’ her summer mission to get as many shops in Ely to support her by having a stand of the sweet treats in their shop.
“It’s a lot of work but I’m hoping the results will be a big help to the charities I want to help,” Tashi said.
The 13-year-old, who is a student at Witchford Village College, has already had retail giant John Lewis confirm a stand in their Cambridge store, while closer to home, the pops are selling well in Scampers Natural Pet Store, in Soham.
Positive Pops are homemade lollipops that are blue in colour.
