Thank you to ALL those who came to our Apple Day on Saturday and Sunday.

John Maude and his team of volunteers worked tirelessly pressing apples to make around around 70 gallons of juice (320 litres) for visitors over the weekend.

They also sold about 10 starter cider kits, so there might be some interesting evenings ahead in Corbridge!
Lots of Corbridge residents, families and children came with their bags of apples, to see how the press worked and to take away their own pressed apple juice.

We donated the used pressed apple (pomace) to the chickens, pigs (named Delia and Nigella) and compost bins, owned by some of our generous visitors.

In total we raised £337 which will enable us to buy a new bed for our nursing residents at Charlotte Straker House.

Thanks to John, and all those who made the weekend such a success (and we hope you’re enjoying your juice!)
