When chocolate maker Bobbie Pryce-Fitchen lost her life partner two years ago‚ she wanted to find a way to honour her legacy.
Confectionery made by the company which Fitchen and Pryce ran together — as part of a relationship that lasted for 35 years — can now be ordered with wrappers designed in memory of Pryce.
Corporate customers at Chocolate Time can specify the wrappers when they order supplies‚ and money raised will go to the Spring Foundation at Lentegeur Hospital‚ in Mitchells Plain. Fitchen’s first port of call was Lentegeur psychiatrist John Parker‚ who directs the foundation.
He explained that it was established to try to change the way mental health is regarded in society. One of its flagship programmes‚ the garden‚ was created to reconnect patients to the earth while giving them practical skills that could be used once they re-enter the community.
