Folk Harvest in Wareham helps local charity

THE Wareham Folk Harvest at the Kings Arms attracted performers from across the south of England and coined in £500 for local charity the Allison Campbell Trust (ACT).

ACT supports people in the Purbeck area who are terminally ill and the Kings Arms has supported it since the charity’s inception, raising more than £4,000.

To tie in with the harvest theme, the raffle prizes were based around local produce and provided by local businesses The Quay Inn, Curtis’s the Butcher, The Purbeck Cider Company, Chococo, Moore’s Biscuits and Dorset Tea.

Helen Casey, for the charity, said: “Thank you to Tim and Jono for hosting the event and to all those who donated their time and raffle prizes, and those who put their hands in their pockets so generously to make this event such a success for ACT.”
