A FareShare Christmas
This Christmas we are delighted to be partnering with FareShare.
For every jar of our Strawberry & Cranberry Reduced Sugar Jam that you buy we will donate a jar to FareShare.
There is also the option to donate additional jars to FareShare should you wish to do so.
A message from FareShare:
“We anticipate the coming months will be extremely difficult for the 400 frontline organisations we serve, and this Winter will certainly be the hardest in our 24 years of operation.”
Jonathan Williams FRSA | Head of Development
We want to support our community in any way we can. We take pride in making our tasty jams and in the positive feedback we get from customers.
But sadly not everyone has access to healthier food choices. Research suggests that overall measures of relative poverty in the UK is at 22% and that relative child poverty has continued to creep up, being 4% higher in 2020 than in 2012 (a raise of 700,000 children).*
In an effort to help families who struggle to make ends meet, we work with FareShare, to donate our jams to family charities.
We encourage and enable our customers (who feel they are in a position to be able to), to buy an extra jar for FareShare when ordering through our website.
In 2021 we also created a special edition Christmas jam.
For every jar bought by a customer Fearne & Rosie donated a jar to FareShare.
Together we donated 561 jars to FareShare over the last 12 months.
We also volunteered for a day, working with the FareShare team to help pack and sort deliveries, learning more about the impact of the work that they do.
