Rococo launches “LOVE BUG” BAR in aid of Kids Company with a “CHOC-OPERA” during Chocolate Week

This is a collectible series of five Rococo organic milk chocolate bars with wrappers designed by children from Kids Company. Retail price £5.50*, with £1 from each bar being donated to fund the Kids Company Arts Progamme.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with the wonderful Rococo on a Kids Company chocolate bar. We have created a collectible series of Love Bug bars together, featuring little love bugs drawn by the children we support. Rococo are kindly donating £1 of every Love Bug bar sold to Kids Company, to support vulnerable children and young people across London. We are deeply grateful to Rococo for their generosity and hope to spread our message of “love is all it takes” far and wide with this sweet series. Chocolate lovers unite!”
Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder of Kids Company

Notes to Editors:
Hilariously improvisational, gently heart-warming, and secretly educational, this romp through the ingredients of opera asks you, the audience, to join in with the fun of making music.
Features the sublime and sometimes supernatural skills of a crack team of professional musicians; their Wobbly World of Opera lifts serious music, rolls it around in it s hands and points at the funny bits.
“The perfect operatic pick-me-up.”
