AN artisan chocolatiers from Conwy have created a 10kg Easter egg inspired by Vivienne Westwood, for use in a charity fundraiser.

Baravelli’s, based at 13 Bangor Road in Conwy, have created a 10kg chocolate egg inspired by the late Vivienne Westwood.

As a tribute to the fashion icon they have created a dark chocolate punk egg sprayed with cocoa butter, with the spikes also made from chocolate.

Owners Emma and Mark Baravelli love to set themselves a chocolate challenge, but this unique Easter egg is to also raise vital funds for mental health charity Conwy Mind.

Anyone who donates £5 or more to their cause will be in with a chance of winning the chocolate, and the business is aiming to raise £500.

So far, the initiative has raised £345, and the prize draw will take place on Easter Sunday, April 11.

Fundraising officer Nikki Jones said: “As a small, local charity the money raised will make a big difference to us here at Conwy Mind.

“Support like this enables us to answer more phone calls, support more people and speak louder for those affected by mental health in Conwy County.

“Having local businesses like Baravelli’s supporting us means a lot, as the money they raise stays within their community.

“It’s helping people on their doorstep to get the support and respect they deserve.”
