HARVEST SALE RAISES £577

2 October 2019

Today, Young Marketeers from 11 schools became market traders, selling their school-grown seasonal fruit and veg at the Harvest Sale in Borough Market.

The students’ market stalls were brimming with pumpkins, squashes, beetroots, potatoes, apples and aubergines, and with their sales hats on, they raised an impressive total of £577. All of this money goes to FareShare, who provide meals for vulnerable families by redistributing surplus food to charities and community groups. Every £1 raised = 4 meals, which means the sales from the Young Marketeers today will provide 2,308 meals! Huge congratulations to all of the students who have taken part in the programme.

Thank you to our funders, NatWest, and to our project partners who all help make this programme possible. Also thanks to the Deputy Mayor of Southwark, Cllr Barrie Hargrove, and Neil Coyle MP, both who visited the students at Borough Market today to show their support!
