An Ealing based sweet business that makes eco-friendly pick and mix was started by Phoebe Donegan earlier this year.

Phoebe suffered a tough year in 2020 after losing her daughter, her career while Covid restrictions were making life hard enough.

However she decided that every chance should be taken to help prevent other mother’s losing their child so she created West London Pick and Mix which not only sells delicious sweets but donates a percentage of every sale to children’s charity Tommy’s one that was particularly close to her heart.

She made sure to source eco-friendly packaging and, with much of her custom local delivery is often done emission-free with Phoebe delivering the goods in person.

She says the sweets have received massive demand and her donations via Work for Good are helping to fund pioneering research and supporting families through pregnancy.

Phoebe says, ‘If I could help just one woman not go through what I went through, it’d all be worth it.’

The sweets are packaged in two sizes and range in price from £6.95 to £13.95.

There is something for everyone including vegans.
