Do you have spare fruit to give away or would you like free fruit to harvest or collect?
The Fruit for Free scheme acts as a notice board to connect those with surplus home-grown fruit - such as apples, pears, plums - to give away and those wanting to receive fruit.
The scheme is for anyone living in the parishes of: Ashperton; Bosbury; Coddington; Colwall; Eastnor and Donnington; Ledbury; Little Malvern; Malvern Town; Malvern Wells; Mathon; Wellington Heath and West Malvern.
The scheme opens on 1st July each year and closes on 15th December.
If you have fruit to donate please click on the 'I HAVE FRUIT TO GIVE AWAY' button below to send us details by email.
When we receive your listing we’ll check it and post it up on this website. Please tell us as soon as the fruit is taken so we can remove the post.
Ledbury Food Bank will also accept donations of good quality, fresh produce. Please check their website for details at https://www.ledburyfoodbank.org
If you want to receive fruit browse the listings below and if you find anything that meets your needs, please contact the donor directly by email. You will need to harvest the fruit unless stated otherwise.
