Real life angel, Kelly Iles has decided to spread her wings and spread untold amounts of joy once again with her special Folksgiving Afternoon Tea - and it was every bit the wholesome day of Good Deeds that you’d expect!
On the back of last year’s amazing success, we wanted to help create more memories that will last forever. After all, what’s Folksgiving without spreading a bit of joy! But as you know, we’re not ones to rest on our laurels, we wanted to go even further than last year and celebrate the fabulous NHS workers that sacrificed so much during the height of the pandemic.
Not content with the amazing work she did in her local community during lockdown, Kelly decided to host a special Folksgiving themed afternoon tea in order to give a little back to local NHS workers. The afternoon tea took place at Kelly’s beautiful Enchanted Tearooms and it was a setting fit for the occasion. What’s more, our Soda Folk superhero, Kelly ensured nothing went to waste and any food left from the event was donated to local hospitals for the NHS staff on night shifts. What a star!
From the woman herself
Here’s what the wonderful Kelly had to say about the event: “Being the featured character on Soda Folk’s Key Lime Pie Soda is a huge achievement and a massive honour, but I felt like that was just the start for us.
Never in a million years did I think I would be on the front of a can of soda, or anything for that matter! But this isn’t about me. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of my amazing staff, without whom, this event would not have been possible at all.
I would also like to thank the NHS for all they have done during the pandemic not just for me and my family but for the whole country. I’m so glad I can spread a little Folksgiving joy this year with my local community. I encourage everyone to do the same - even if it’s something small!”
What the future holds
Even after Thanksgiving weekend is over, that doesn’t mean the Good Deeds should come to an end. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the stress of Christmas and forget about the other people that are in need of help this winter. But Kelly is in no hurry to forget! A shining light to us all and an inspiration to so many. We salute you Kelly!
And as a special thank you to you beautiful bunch, we’re launching a 20% discount for the entire Thanksgiving weekend! In the meantime, if you’re running low on cans, pop over to Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Costco, Amazon or our lovely online shop at sodafolk.com.
