The Rumwell Farm Shop have announced their next fundraiser for 2016 in support of SURE
Host a party in aid of S.U.R.E
SOMERSET folk are being invited to support a charity in the county by purchasing party-themed food items from a farm shop in the area (March, 2016).
Rumwell Farm Shop is donating 10p from each packet of jelly beans and 25p from each party meringue to one of its charities of the year, Somerset Unit for Radiotherapy Equipment (S.U.R.E), until the end of the year.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, said: “We are aiming to raise at least £2,000 for S.U.R.E during 2016 and this will be a great campaign to kick off the fundraising.
“We are hoping lots of people will purchase the items and host a party in aid of the charity, which is based in Taunton. Its objective is to raise funds to help provide top class cancer diagnosis and treatment at the Cancer Centre known as the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton.”
The charity has so far donated more than £1.8 million of equipment to the centre. S.U.R.E is currently aiming to raise £500,000 by March 2017 to purchase a new Big Bore CT Scanner/Simulator to replace the previous scanner purchased by the charity.
Chairman at S.U.R.E, Paul Alway, said: “We would like to say thank you to Rumwell Farm Shop for hosting this party-feel fundraiser in aid of our cause. We hope Rumwell’s customers get behind them and purchase the items and even host a party. It would be great to raise awareness of the need of the new Big Bore CT Scanner/Simulator for the Beacon Centre.”
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business. Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall. Home grown potatoes are also still available as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Café, which opened in May 2015, is able to seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the café kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the café and there is a menu especially for children. The café also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. To add to this it also has a separate gluten free menu.
