explained: “Back then I was working in a small café in Harrogate, running a busy kitchen. One of the
best sellers was my ‘original’ chocolate brownie. I quickly recognised the great potential of this
gooey treat and set up a micro bakery from the back of my parents’ small holding in York.
The business proved a success and following a move to larger premises in Ripon, Brown and Blond,
now bake thousands of brownies a week. As well as attending numerous shows across Yorkshire the
business also supplies its products to a growing number of wholesale customers.
Brian Curran, Candlelighter’s Corporate Fundraiser said,” We are grateful to George for choosing to
support us. We are looking forward to working with him as well as sampling his products.”
George said: “We were made aware of Candlelighters by a friend and thought it sounded like a great
charity. We are delighted that our chocolate brownies will be helping to support children who are
fighting cancer and their families.”
