AN EMPTY sandwich shop has been given a new lease of life by a cake-making entrepreneur.

Charlie Jacob-Gray has opened a shop on the corner of Gosport’s North Cross Street.

The 30-year-old was born with a condition called Erb’s Palsy, which limits movement in her left hand.

But it has not stopped Charlie from setting up her own business.

She said: ‘I had been doing it from home, but it was overtaking my house.

‘I thought it was time to take the next step. It was such a pretty looking shop and I thought I would go for it.’

Charlie got the baking bug as she wanted to make cakes for her son, Harry.

Her condition means she has to decorate one-handed – but she takes it all in her stride.

Each month Charlie makes a charity cake and some of the profits go to charity.

This month is the turn of CLIC Sargent and next month it will be Erb’s Palsy Group.
