Sponsorship News!

Harleston Corncuopia

Earlier in the year, we brought you the news that Cornucopia had sponsored the digging of a well in the Lingamparthi area of India.

We are now delighted to confirm that we have raised enough money throughout 2018 so far to sponsor the digging of a second well!  This well is in the Yeleswaram area of India and is already in operation!

The money for the second well was raised from the sale of items donated by customers and traders, as well as monetary donations and proceeds from ‘Deb’s scone of the month’.

A massive Thank You to everyone for all donations received and Cornucopia will be continuing their sponsorship of this incredibly important cause.
