This spring three local farm shops have had a charity box on their counters. Thorne’s have produced £91 over the last few months and continue to have the box available for donations. Hillfoot Farm Shop’s box reached £41, and they are also continuing to encourage their customers to donate. Franklins Farm Shop produced £23 in the week of Easter. This total of £155 is obviously very welcome, and we are happy that the boxes increase local awareness of our project.
