Glühwein, gingerbread and German soup delighted visitors in Hythe

Posted on 10 December 2012

Visitors to Hythe were given the chance to enjoy an array of traditional German soups, gingerbread and glühwein in aid of Pilgrims Hospices on Saturday (24 November).

David and Maria White opened up their house in Park Road, Hythe, to allow friends and strangers to sample, among others, delicious lentil and frankfurter soup.

Children – and quite a few adults – were given the chance to decorate homemade gingerbread shapes – as well as tasting the sweets themselves.

The older visitors were greeted with mugs of warm glühwein, which with the soup meant dreadful weather was soon ignored!

Lucy Ellam aged 9 said: “We come every year. It is always great fun. I love decorating the gingerbread – but I love eating it even more!”

Sharon Burberry, Pilgrims Hospices fundraising assistant, said: “David and Maria spend time in Germany throughout the year sourcing traditional ingredients for this wonderful food. Their commitment to providing a truly magical German Christmas is wonderful.

“75% of our funding comes from the community and it is always special when the community comes together for events like this to support us.”

David and Maria will be supporting Pilgrims Hospices again in the High Street in Hythe on Friday 7th December from 6pm – 9pm (opposite the Kings Head). Don’t miss your chance of another opportunity to sample their fabulous food.
