In 2008/9 I was on a boat that had bags of chillis that we could not take (fresh) into the next port. I decided to make some sauce out of them which would be allowed through customs, and Clampy's was born.
The sauce was a big hit with the crew, so over the next few years I tried varying ingredients to get it exactly how it is now. Some suggested hotter, less hot, different cooking etc, but having listened a
and tried them, we are now back to how it was. It is, after all CLAMPY'S so made how I like it, and if you like that too - Great.
About the same time as the creation, my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Since then, my mother has also been diagnosed with what is termed 'Mixed Dementia' , so rather than giving Clampy's away, I decided it would be a nice idea if a donation was made.
So, you are not actually buying it, you are getting a free sample and then making donation to a worthy cause. I think that over the last 2-3 years, the amount is probably close to £1000 split between Alzheimer's and Cancer research, and everything donated goes to the cause.
The creation of this Just Giving site is to give a renewed momentum to the fund raising, and a way that all who enjoy it can see that it is hopefully making some small difference.
Cheers (and don't rub your eye)

I am making and selling my wonderful hot sauce for Alzheimer's Society because so many people I know have been affected by this.
