When Suzi Russell and her daughter Primrose grew a huge ‘Cinderella’ pumpkin on their farm near Lowestoft, they thought it would be a fantastic way to raise money and support Children on the Edge, they certainly didn’t expect that the pumpkin would become a local talking point and feature in the news.
Suzi, who is a Body Shop at Home Consultant, together with 5-year-old Primrose, grew the enormous pumpkin and auctioned it off to the highest bidder to raise funds to support Children on the Edge.
This could have been the end of a lovely story but this pumpkin tale doesn’t end here…
Incredibly, after featuring in the local newspaper, the famous pumpkin was returned to Suzi and Primrose.
An unsuspecting lady had picked up the pumpkin, assuming that they were for sale, but didn’t have any cash on her at the time. She had been planning to return with some money when her husband spotted the appeal and she realised her mistake, bringing the now infamous ‘Cinderella’ Pumpkin straight home.
Suzi said that she couldn’t believe it when the pumpkin was returned, Primrose was so happy to see the pumpkin she gave it a huge welcome home hug!
