Come to the orchards to pick your own
4:54pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
A CHANCE to pick your own fruit and make a different to charity is being offered in Evesham this Sunday.
The event will take place in the apple and pear orchards in the Evesham Country Park between 10.30am and 3pm.
It is part of a new initiative, the Community Crop Scheme, set up by local business owner Lisa Whelan.
Everyone who comes along will be asked to donate £1 in support of Acorns Children’s Hospice and 10 per cent of proceeds from any products made from the harvest will also be given to the charity.
Mrs Whelan said: “It should be brilliant. This will be the last chance at this orchard as it will go as part of the park’s development plans. But I hope to make the harvest an annual event.”
The owner of Jelly Pickle Jam added: “The Community Crop Scheme has had a good response. There is so much for me to do now.”
