‘New business pledges percentage of profit to Harlow Foodbank’


February 2014

A Harlow resident has launched a new online business selling premium handmade greeting cards with the promise of a 25p donation from each card sold to go to Harlow Foodbank.  Bethan Walker, of Fifth Avenue, has recently set up the new online business ‘Bette Made It’.

When asked about the inspiration behind the venture

“I wanted to produce quality goods that people would be delighted to have in their homes whilst, at the same time, giving something back to my local community.  This is my way of supporting those with immediate needs who may live just down the road or round the corner from me.”
