Heulwen Piggot and son Daniel visited SCC on 1st April following
their successful bid on a tour of the Creamery at a Hope House auction.
South Caernarfon Creameries donated a ‘site tour voucher’ and a hamper of Dragon
products for the auction organised by Hope House in November 2015. Hope
House provides a valuable service to all communities: specialist
nursing care, counselling, understanding, compassion and empathy, and
have dedicated support teams who work at Hope House and in the home.
South Caernarfon Creamaries was pleased to be able to support such a
worthy cause. The Piggot family won the race at auction which raised an
overall total of £31,663.25 on the night.
Katrina Lawson, Area Fundraiser commented “we collected an amazing
amount and it will be of massive help for the team to support children
who are not expected to live longer than early adulthood, as well as
their parents and family. We wish to thank everyone who supported the
Both visitors enjoyed the tour very much, learning about the history
of the business, the cheesemaking process and the new investment. Mrs
Piggot was born and raised on a small dairy farm in Llanddaniel on
Anglesey and was always interested to see how milk was processed in a
factory. The old separator we have in the meeting room brought back
fond memories of her as a child turning the heavy handle for a long time
to separate the cream from the skim.
