This year has been bad for many charities because of the covid pandemic. We've been unable to have our usual spring and autumn open afternoons selling cakes, orchard jam, etc. But we still need some help with donations to keep things moving to improve and expand the orchard for the local community and future generations. We are a non profit organisation, with all funds going to the 'Thundridge Community Orchard Trust Ltd'.
It’s simple, it’s safe, and it doesn’t cost you a penny.
Recurring costs the donated funds go towards: Public liability insurance, machinery maintenance, fuel, purchasing trees, employing proffesional services such as tree surgeons and website running costs.

We had a fund raising campaign (2017) for our new tree project. People were so generous with donations of money 14 new heritage fruit trees were ordered and work started in the autumn (2017) to prepare the ground for tree planting in January 2018.
See the 'Special Thanks' page to see who donated.
Thanks to everyone who donated money, bulbs and their time to planting the spring bulbs.
Bulbs planted: Various colours of crocus, daffodils, hyacinth and tulips.
We are looking at installing a raised pond to attract a more diverse type of wildlife into the orchard. The pond will be left to its own devices, so it will interesting to see what turns up.
If we opt for a 'Pond Kit' the estimated cost is £200 to £300. If you can help to raise some pennies towards the purchase we would be forever gratefull. Please use the PayPal button at top of this page to make a donation. Thank you.
