A bumper year for apples

2013 has been a brilliant year for the Fruit Harvesting Scheme. We have harvested crates and crates full of surplus fruit from around Oabby and Wigston - it's certainly been a bumper crop!

We have been working with various Food Banks to distribute the fruit to people in need, and have been able to help well over 100 families.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved; the owners of the trees, volunteer pickers and sorters, people who have helped to process the damaged fruit to make juice, and the food banks for helping to get the fruit to the people who need it most.
