Rainham Orchard

Working alongside other Rotary Clubs in Medway

In 2014 a band of volunteers rescued five acres of overgrown apple orchard in Lower Rainham. Agreement was reached with the owner that the volunteers would run it both as a productive orchard and for the benefit of wildlife. Each autumn the orchard is opened up to the community for Pick Your Own apples - all proceeds from the sale of apples is donated to Kent Wildlife Trust.

Strood Rotary together with other local clubs manned the sales tent and directed traffic.

Other the course of the various weekends in September and October and, despite the rain, £4660 was raised in total.
