CARROT COMMUNITY: Croxley Easter project aims to raise crucial funds for cancer charity

 Published on: 24th March 2021   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A creative project is set to bring together the whole Croxley community to support a cancer charity.

The Carrot Community project was set up by a Croxley resident to raise funds for charity Alice’s Arc, which friend Natalie Carpenter is a trustee of.

The project involves residents collecting rainbow carrot seeds to plant over Easter weekend to remember Natalie’s son Freddie who sadly passed away in 2018.

A spokesperson for the Carrot Community project said: “The basic idea is that we are giving out rainbow carrot seeds within the local community. I have sent out over 70 packets of seeds.

“We plant them on easter weekend and remember Freddie and the idea is that with the carrot seeds he will grow on with us.”

The spokesperson added that in planting the seeds over Easter weekend they are asking the community to donate to Alice’s Arc.

The charity has an overall fundraising target of £1.5million over the next three years to help fund less hash treatments for childhood cancer.

Seeds are available to collect at The Green Stores and Perch Café and you can donate to Alice’s Arc here.
