Izzy Wizzy Creations Support Group
Izzy Wizzy Creations was created by Carol Phillips and Jane Gale in July 2014. Through their love of crafting they have made greetings cards and Chocolate Christmas novelties for sale at the hospice and local Christmas Fayres, with St Pierre venue being their highlight of the year. Whilst most of their items have been aimed at “pocket money” amounts they’ve gone on to raise over £10,000, with their curvy character boxes filled with chocolates being the firm favourite. They look forward to returning to St Pierre every November, with many new as well as old favourite ideas.
