Fruits of Fulflood turn spare fruit into vital finds for the Nightshelter

Fruits of Fulflood, a group that turns surplus fruit from the Fulflood area of Winchester into jams and chutneys, has raised an incredible £575 pounds for the Nightshelter by selling their produce to the local community.

Sarah Gooding and Eleanor Waterhouse have run the scheme for over five years, using their culinary expertise to support local charities and promote food recycling. 

Michele Price, Nightshelter Manager, said: "This great community project not only helps the Nightshelter through the donation of vital funds, but highlights the varied and imaginative ways in which people raise money for us, in this case using unwanted local resources to generate funds. We're so grateful for the support of Fruits of Fulflood, and hope they inspire others to support local charities in a similar way. We can also happily confirm that the chutneys and jams taste delicious."
