Cadbury World chocolatier creates stunning 30inch egg to raise funds for Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation

A MASTER chocolatier at the renowned Cadbury World has created a beautiful giant chocolate egg to support the work of charity Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation.

Talented Phoebe Snow took three days to craft the impressive egg which is 30ins tall and weighs 38kg – the equivalent of 844 standard bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk.

The show-stopping egg has been hand-decorated with a unique white chocolate design and features three intricate doves and a giant heart from the charity’s logo.

Helping to raise awareness and much-needed funds, the chocolatey creation will be raffled off to one lucky individual on Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation social media channels with the draw taking place at midday on May 8.

500 raffle tickets or more are available to purchase online, costing £2 each with all profits raised going towards the Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation which finds and supplies defibrillators and provides life-saving training.

The organisation, run by Redditch couple Rob and Maggie Underwood, also raises awareness of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.

The pair launched the charity in 2010 following the death of their 16-year-old daughter Charlotte.

Tragically, three years later, the couple’s 17-year-old son Craig died from Vascular Ehlors Danlos Syndrome (Veds) and in January 2018, their 19-year-old son Carrick also died due to heart problems.

Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “We are incredibly proud to support a number of fantastic charities at Cadbury World, and combining the skills of our talented in-house team with the nation’s love of chocolate, our lovingly decorated giant eggs are just one of the ways that we can give something back to our local communities.

“We’re pleased to be able to play our part in raising money for Charlotte & Craig Saving Hearts Foundation, and such a wonderful cause.”

Maggie Underwood, co-founder of Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation, said: “We’d like to thank the Cadbury World chocolatiers and the wider team for their delicious donation and support for our charity.

“We strive to continue campaigning hard and raising funds to get more lifesaving equipment installed into as many public places and schools as possible across the West Midlands.”

To be in with a chance of winning the delicious giant 38kg Easter egg, please visit the charity’s Facebook page where raffle tickets can be purchased for £2.
