FOODIE folk from a mental health charity in Harpenden have found the recipe for fundraising success by selling their own cook book.
Community Meeting Point Harpenden (CMPH), which cares for people with long term mental health problems, has raised over �350 from sales of Food Glorious Food, a glossy family cook book which compiles members' favourite recipes.
The book, which costs �5 and includes recipes for everything from soups and salads to fish and puddings, was the brainchild of CMPH volunteer Joan Reibscheid, who said that she was determined to come up with a fresh fundraising idea.
"Here at CMPH we're always trying to think of fun ways to fundraise and luckily Maggie Snyder, our centre manager, really liked my suggestion for a recipe book. I asked, requested and badgered members, staff and volunteers for their favourite family recipes and we even typed and produced the book ourselves too."

Maggie, who donated her Mediterranean vegetables dish to Food Glorious Food, said that she was very proud of the CMPH team: "Everyone put so much hard work into the project and I'm impressed with how many copies we've sold so far - the first batch of 50 went so quickly!"
Food Glorious Food is available to buy from the CMPH base in Wheathampstead High Street and on November 14 and December 5, it will also be available from Wesley's Coffee Shop in the Methodist Church on the High Street, Harpenden.
