Children’s Hospice South West Cheque Presentation

Cheque Presentation

Yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 20th Dec) Phil, Paul & Mike visited The Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) at Charlton Farm, Wraxall, to meet Community Fundraiser Kylie Gallagher and present a cheque for £300, which was raised selling Mulled Cider at the Nailsea Christmas Fair.
 
During the year CHSW offered the excess apples from their orchard to Nailsea Cider.  We decided to show our thanks by mulling some of our cider and selling it at The Nailsea Christmas Fair on 1st December.  100% of the sales of this was donated to the Hospice.  We were very proud not to take anything from the sales for ourselves, donating the cider, spices, heat and our time.
We hope that this will be the start of a long and fruitful partnership.

Christmas Fayre

ChristmasMarket

On Friday December 1st Mike and Paul took 50 litres of mulled cider to the Nailsea Christmas Fair.  The night was cold and dry – just like a Christmas Fair should be.  Between 5pm and 8pm they worked almost non-stop, and by the end of it had almost completely sold out, raising £300 for Children’s Hospice South West.  We’re very proud to support the Hospice, and were pleased that at the Christmas Fair, 100% of the income from sales of Mulled Cider was donated.

Apple Day 2015

Nailsea Transition Town and Nailsea Cider once again teamed up together to bring Nailsea Apple Day 2015 to the good folk of Nailsea.  Between 1pm and 4pm (well, 5pm really) we pressed apples from all comers, and also some that had been collected by the Transition Group.  People brought along their own apples, we pressed them, and they took away the juice (or some of it).  There was also Coffee and Apple Cakes available and some Live music provided by Dave Francis.

We had made cider from last year’s pressing which was available to buy by the glass, and could also be bought in 3l Bag in Boxes just along the road at our friends at the Ring o’ Bells.

Apple Day Cider

We’re very excited that several varieties of old cider apples were picked up from Charlton Farm, where the Childrens’ Hospice are. 

A good day, and all in all we pressed over 200ltrs of juice.
