Fresh produce to raise vital funds for local hospice

Will Box and Natalie Bingham at Eden Valley Hospice

Eden Valley Hospice has announced they will be benefitting from a new partnership with Inter Fresh, Premium Fresh Food Service.

Inter Fresh, who supply fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy produce to the catering and hospitality trade, will be donating 10p from every order to the local charity. This will provide many local businesses with the opportunity to receive high quality fresh produce whilst raising money in aid of Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice.

Will Box, Inter Fresh Manager, explained, “My family have many connections with the hospice through my mum’s work at Burnetts, my Gran does lots of different things, my uncle takes part in the Great North Run every year and I also take part in the Royal Oak Scotby Golf Day every year. It was my first thought to support Eden Valley Hospice by making a donation for every order made.”

Natalie Bingham, Corporate Fundraisers, said: “We are thrilled that Will chose to support the hospice in this rather unique way. It’s certainly a new venture for the hospice and we are excited about the partnership ahead.”

The money raised through the orders placed with Inter Fresh will help Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw to provide the highest standards of care, support and activities to adults and children with life limiting illnesses. This care and support is extended to all of the patients’ families, friends and carers.

Year on year it costs the local charity over £3.7million to provide the care, support and activities to local people. Approximately 28% of the funding is received from the NHS with the remaining £2million raised by the kindness, support and generosity of the local community.

If you would like to find out more information about the variety of produce available to purchase from Inter Fresh please contact Will via email interfreshproduce@yahoo.com or call 07805442789.
