Lemonade Summerhouse on wheels!

We want to construct a summerhouse on the back of a van so that we can take our new range of natural, Scottish ''Summerhouse'' lemonades to festivals, foodie events and exhibitions this summer and beyond.

Help us construct a wooden summerhouse on the back of a van so that we can take our new range of natural, Scottish ''Summerhouse'' lemonades to festivals, foodie events and exhibitions this summer and beyond.

We'll use it for sampling and taste testing as well as selling our new drinks and making 'mocktails'. What better way to dispense our Summerhouse branded drinks range than from an actual summerhouse?!

Here at Berry Scrumptious, we're an innovative wee team. We've been producing award winning chocolate covered strawberries since 2006, sending them throughout the UK (including to the BAFTA Film Awards and Wimbledon!). Our range of confectionery including chocolate, fudge and truffles is for sale in farm shops and delicatessians throughout Scotland and beyond.

We're very excited about our new range of soft drinks which will be made on our family farm using natural ingredients, and no artificial colours or flavours. Although lemons don't grow in Scotland, we'll be sourcing the rest of our ingredients as close to home as possible and employing local people as our business grows.

As well as looking the part, our summerhouse on wheels will have a serving area, storage space, a fridge to keep drinks cool and some ingenious sleeping facilities for overnight stays at events, which fold away during the day. 

We need around £3000 to buy a reasonable, second hand van with a bare chassis. We've costed materials at around £800. Although we're pretty good with a paintbrush and a hammer, we'll also need the use of a good local joiner with a lot of imagination for part of the project and have been quoted £700 for this. All this will be done while meeting current VOSA regulations.

If we raise additional funds, we'll put it towards the purchase of the van so that we can get the best van we can afford. Ideally one with a radio, working heater and air conditioning for our hot Scottish summers! 

We are aiming on having our van ready for a grand tour of Scotland in early May when we'll set out to host a number of VIP tasting events before we embark on a busy summer of attending festivals, foodie events and exhibitions.

We'd be delighted if you can join us on this journey and thank you for any contribution you make to our campaign. We look forward to welcoming you to our summerhouse at an event this summer where you can see and taste the fruits of your labour.
