A Bromley woman has taken on the challenge of raising £13,000 for charity by setting up her own business selling quirky mugs.

Gemma Sharman, 23, of Homesdale Road, formed her company HOT with a group of work colleagues and aims to raise money for the Prince’s Trust as part of the Million Makers project.

The mugs, featuring slogans such as “hot, strong and generous”, have currently raised around £1,500 and are currently on sale online as well as at Avery Interiors, in High Street, West Wickham.

Gemma said: “We based the idea around the notion that tea is very vogue at the moment and with it being such a patriotic year.”
