LAST YEAR´S FRUIT DAY SUCCESS!
We held our 12th Annual Fruit Day on Saturday 17th September 2022! With the weather on our side, stalls and entertainment aplenty, and lots of people coming through the doors, it was set to be a great success.
We had stalls brimming with jams, cakes, jellies, marmalades, and chutneys, all made using the surplus fruit picked locally by our fabulous Fruit Pickers, and made by our volunteer bakers and chefs. Thank you to all those involved in stocking our stalls! And thank you also to all those who BOUGHT these lovely treats. Because of you, we raised the most ever to date since Abundance Wimbledon began in 2011 - much of which will be distributed amongst various local charities.
Check out our photos from this year's event to relive the happy day, or for those who are new to Abundance Wimbledon, for a flavour of what Fruit Day is!

Back by popular demand was Sue's Jam-making Masterclass. Two sessions were held at the end of May 2022, and a further one in August under the watchful eye and wisdom of Sue, and fellow jam-maker professionals Di and Robin.
The Masterclass sessions involved start to finish hands-on tuition on how to made 3x different types of delicious homemade jam: Apple & Blackberry, Rhubarb and Ginger, and Abundance Wimbledon's bestseller at Fruit Day, Somerset Jam. Not only were the sessions highly informative, but they were also a great opportunity to meet others within our community who share a passion for cooking, learning new skills, and the aim to reduce food waste by turning surplus fruit into something useful and highly scrumptious!
