Olmo Lounge raises funds for local children’s charity

The Olmo Lounge Donation - 120320The wonderful staff from the Olmo Lounge in Huntingdon has raised nearly £1,000 for Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s charity, ‘dreamdrops.’

The Olmo Lounge is a new neighbourhood café bar on Huntingdon High Street. The lounge is committed to engaging with the local community and as part of this they wanted to connect with a local charity, which strikes a chord with their team and customers, to support their efforts and raise funds.

Kylie Knipp, General Manager said: “We wanted to raise money for a local charity and were keen to support dreamdrops, who are such a worthy children’s charity.

“We raised the money by donating 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold in the first month of trading. We had a great first month selling 2,576 coffees and 1,367 burgers!  We hope the money raised will benefit the charity and look forward to working with the charity in the future.”

Anne-Marie Hamilton, Chairman of dreamdrops said: “We are so grateful to everyone at the Olmo Lounge, in particular Kylie, for raising such a large amount of money for our charity. We are thrilled that they chose dreamdrops and the money will be used to help support children and their families in the local community.”
