Home Social Kettle Produce mucks in with charity family garden project
Vegetable supplier lends its green-fingered expertise to vulnerable Fife families
Fife vegetable supplier Kettle Produce has joined Fife Gingerbread’s ‘A Day To Make A Difference’ volunteer scheme to offer support for lone parents, vulnerable and disadvantaged local families.
A four-strong team of volunteers from the Balmalcolm-based company helped to kick off Fife Gingerbread’s ‘The Gateway to Levenmouth’ gardening pilot scheme by mucking in to bring a local family’s garden back to a useable condition.
Kettle Produce managing director Susie McIntyre said: “Kettle Produce is passionate about supporting our local community and we’re very proud of our staff for stepping forward to offer to help such a worthy community support scheme.
“Fife Gingerbread and its partners work tirelessly to help some of Fife’s most vulnerable residents through a number of initiatives and we are honoured to play our part.”
Fife Gingerbread Volunteer development coordinator Michelle Campbell said: “This support is so invaluable to our charity, the families we support, and also the local community.
“The impact this has on families and the children is priceless; families can use their gardens once again, meaning children and parents have access to a safe space to play, grow and develop. The volunteers were very professional and went way beyond our expectations, we as an organisation consider ourselves privileged to have this support from Kettle Produce.”
