Solley’s Gives Away Ice Cream For Charity

Award-winning dairy producers Solley’s Farms will give away ice cream at Whitefriars shopping centre in Canterbury on Thursday, May 30 from noon to raise money for the Pilgrim Hospices.

The Kentish dairy experts will be handing out their delicious ice cream to shoppers in return for a donation to the charity.

Stephen Solley, managing director of Solley’s Farms said: “The Pilgrims Hospices do tremendous work across east Kent, providing specialist palliative care in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet. We are proud to support them and hope that all those who enjoy our ice cream will make a contribution to the Hospices’ invaluable work.”

Solley’s will be giving away the ice cream from their 1971 Morrisons van. The authentic van – complete with chimes – will bring back many a happy memory for those old enough to remember the iconic look of the original ice cream vans, and excite those young enough to know what its appearance means.

Solley’s, based in Ripple, near Deal, is one of the largest independent ice cream makers in the South East and has been producing real Kentish dairy ice cream for almost 30 years. It recently began supplying Australian airline Qantas.

Stephen Solley said: “Our ice cream is the result of generations of dairy production experience and we source 85 per cent of our base products from Kent and all of our milk from a Jersey herd on a neighbouring farm.”
