Help Cheltenham charity and guess weight of this squash
Can you guess how heavy this Musque de Provence squash is?
It will be on display at Emmaus charity shop in Henrietta Street, Cheltenham to help them raise money to feed the homeless during Christmas.
Thieves targeted the shop last month, taking around £100 in cash and, after the Echo put out an appeal, donations started pouring in.
Bishop’s Cleeve resident Dave Low has donated the squash, which he started growing in May, so people can guess its weight in the shop to raise money.

The giant vegetable will then be used to feed the homeless over the festive period.
“I am quite happy to donate it, I did not quite know what to do with the beastie,” said Mr Low. “It can keep for ages, but once you open it you will have to cook it quite quickly.”
He added: “It is very important we share the goodwill around. We should set an example of how to behave towards each other and I think community spirit is just so important.”
More than £1,300 has been raised for the shop since the theft.
Donations have varied from small amounts from homeless people to about £100 from former Bond girl, actress Fiona Fullerton, who lives in Montpellier.
