Clara's pumpkin nightmare has happy ending
Tamsin Bent from the Stroud Valleys Project gives Clara Bermingham, four and brother Francis, two, a new pumpkin after theirs was stolen and smashed (1395373)
A LITTLE girl who was going to be left without a pumpkin to carve for Halloween after hers was stolen and smashed has been given another one by the charity Stroud Valleys Project.
Clara Bermingham, four, who lives in Belle Vue Close with her mum Grace, dad Robert and brother Francis, two, was devestated after the pumpkin she had spent all summer carefully watering and nurturing was stolen from her garden last month.
However, an article in the SNJ last week about the theft prompted environmental charity SVP to donate a pumpkin to the four-year-old.
"When we saw her picture in the paper we just thought it was so sad," said Tamsin Bent, SVP Get Growing project officer.
"I wanted to give Clara one of the pumpkins I had been growing so that she still has something to carve for Halloween."
Tamsin has also organised a pumpkin trail at the Museum in the Park on Sunday , October 27.
Drop off your carved pumpkins at the museum courtyard between 11am and 3.30pm and then set off on the trail to find your pumpkin from 5.30pm.
Prizes will be awarded for the best carved home-grown pumpkin, best primary entry, best secondary entry and best family entry.
