Exciting sponsorship news from Cornucopia!

Harleston Corncuopia

To all of our loyal customers, traders and friends,

This year we were not invited to sponsor the Harleston Christmas tree, so instead, we have decided to re-direct our sponsorship and are paying for a water well to be dug in a small village in Visnapathnam in India.

This will provide a valuable and much needed water source for the local community and we are endeavouring to get this done before Christmas.

We will share the pictures with you on completion.

I am sure you will agreed that this is a worthwhile cause and a very credible alternative to the tree.

Please like us on Facebook if you agree.

Best wishes,

Charlie and Glen at Cornucopia, Harleston
