Local Fox needs your help! We’re saving the world one unloved piece of fruit at a time
Every year many tonnes of apples are left to waste and rot across London, falling from trees in private gardens and orchards. Or at least they used to be.
Since 2016, The Orchard Project, the only national charity dedicated to the creation and restoration of community orchards, and its growing band of volunteers have been on a mission. Through our juice and cider enterprise we have rescued 9 tonnes of apples, by 2019 we hope to grown this to 40 tonnes of unloved apples!
The movement is expanding quickly and we’re struggling to keep up. Over the next 6 months, we need to raise £50,000 so that our juicing enterprise can continue – we have ambitions to grow, work with at least 300 volunteers per year and continue to tackle food waste across the capital. Without this funding, we will have to close our doors in 2019 and our production will cease. This would make us all feel sad, especially Rosa and Lizzie who have worked tirelessly on co-ordinating this project.

Thanks again for your time and consideration. You should feel proud to be supporting such a fantastic project.
