A HUTTON mother has put her creative skills to the test and formed a new chocolate business – where a portion of the profit will go to a Weston charity.
Lin Bell, aged 43, set up Pom Pom Chocolate last month, which she runs from her home in Sutherland Drive.
The mother of two sells her specially designed chocolate bars, as well as a range of chocolate bouquets, and some of the money will be donated to Weston Hospicecare.
Lin said: “All of the bars are made from British ingredients and I make the bouquets with bars of chocolate instead of flowers.
“I have wanted to do something for myself for quite some time. I wanted to do something a bit creative and something that was going to help raise funds as well.

“The hospice is a brilliant charity and I know a few people that have had to pass through there, and I thought I could do something to help.
“It’s a valuable cause and it does such a good job.”

Lin said some of her friends have spent time at the Uphill-based charity and has pledged to donate 30p from every bar of chocolate sold and £1.50 from every chocolate bouquet. Lin sells a range of tasty treats including, milk, white and two types of dark chocolate, as well as bars flavoured with chocolate and lime.
Lin added: “The name comes from me making wool pom poms and I do try to include one with each bar of chocolate.
“In the future I would also like to set up a craft forum.”
