Looking for something to do in half term? How about fruit picking?

I recently heard about a group called Abundance which arranges fruit picking for people who either can't or don't want to pick their own fruit.

You can read more about this on greenjottings

If you know people who don't pick their fruit it is worth putting them in touch with one of these groups. They can choose to keep the fruit that has been picked for them. Unwanted fruit is then given to charity.  Windfalls and damaged fruit is made into pies, crumbles, chutneys, jams and all in a good cause.

I will try to find out whether there is a nationwide list or website where people can find details of their nearest group.  When I do I'll be sure to post it here but in the meantime a few groups are listed in this article in Time Out.
