A fruit marketing business representing fruit farmers across the region has donated £10,000 towards the East Anglia Children’s Hospice at Quidenham.

Berry Gardens contributed the money as part of £40,000 donation to four UK children’s hospice charities as part of its 40th birthday.

The money was presented by award winning Norfolk fruit grower Tim Place, of Church Farm, Tunstead, near Stalham.

The Kent-based fruit marketing company works with fruit growers all over the UK and wanted to celebrate the milestone by giving something back to the local communities where they have farms and growers producing soft and stone fruits, such as strawberries, cherries and raspberries.

Mr Place, one of 10 growers represented by Berry Gardens across East Anglia, said: “It was a privilege to give £10,000 to an extremely worthy cause. This is a wonderful gesture by Berry Gardens to give something back to a much needed part of the community as a way of celebrating 40 years as a company.”

Each fundraiser, Jessica Hiscocks said the donation was “absolutely astonishing” and the money could be used to pay for over 250 sessions of music therapy, to encourage children to express their feelings and emotions by listening or joining in with singing or playing instruments.
