Pudding the internet to good use
Father Mac's Heavenly Puddings have crossed over into the digital world - selling their popular puddings online, all year round. Now anyone across the country can have their pudding and donate to a worthy cause.
"The site has only been live for over a week and we have customers using the online facility already," Mrs Crethar said.
The online shop will enable Father Mac's to expand their retail footprint with more people able to conveniently purchase their pudding.
"We have limited retailers that stock our puddings, and we are very grateful for those organisations that support us, however we know that the online ordering will increase our customer satisfaction due to convenience," said Mrs Crethar.
Father Mac's Heavenly Puddings is an organisation that is part of the Alstonville Parish. They make and sell Christmas-style fruit puddings, donating proceeds to numerous charity organisations locally and around the world that help the poor, starving or disadvantaged. "We assist with financial contributions to the training of young people in first aid so they can provide care for family members who are living and dying with HIV/AIDS. We are very proud of what we can do for these young graduates," Mrs Crethar said. "Every year, for many years, we are very pleased to help the Lismore Soup Kitchen by supplying their puddings for Christmas day and we assist where necessary throughout the year," Mrs Crethar said.
Mrs Crethar is often asked the secret to the success of Father Mac's Heavenly Puddings, and she believes it's a very simple explanation.
"It's a quality pudding of course, made with quality ingredients, blended with a great story and the unique blend of wonderful volunteers," she said.
