A CONDIMENT company in Malmesbury is asking people to collect crab apples for a good cause during a walk in the countryside.

Tracklements is partnering with Sherston’ School and its Guides, Brownies, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers to gather the fruit for the company to turn into jelly.

The groups will get 50p for every kilogram of crab apples handed in, and a further 25p from the sale of every jar sold nationwide.

Last year, the ingredient cash and the jelly jar sales raised more than £750 for the school.

Anyone with crab apples they would like to collect up and hand in to support the children of Sherston can drop them off at Tracklements's plant at Whitewalls, Easton Grey, from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday before September 30.

As well as raising money, the project hopes to teach great way to teach children about the countryside and where their food comes from.
