Introducing the Riverford Veg Fund #competition

Riverford have started a wonderful initiative helping make it easier to raise funds for your children’s school.  Lets be honest parents are always digging out a tombola or raffle prize, baking up a batch of cakes or volunteering their help to man a stand of some kind to help with the school coffers.  But now it’s even simpler to do your bit just by encouraging your school to sign up to the Riverford Veg Fund – much better than dusting off unwanted Christmas presents and then seeing them constantly doing the rounds from one raffle to the next…

Once the school is registered its just a matter of getting the word out there, sadly Riverford do not deliver to my area at the moment otherwise I would be busy coaxing all the parents to order tasty Riverford veg boxes.  Not only is it a clever fundraising idea it really helps everyone in the family have a healthier lifestyle and hopefully try new vegetables.  If you’re an existing customer Riverford will still kindly donate so you see it would be silly not to get involved, you are actively fundraising just by continuing to do what you normally would.

Once a parent has ordered three times £15 will be donated to the school so if you can encourage enough parents to join it will have a big impact on the quality of your child’s learning through better supplies and materials to educational trips for them to enjoy.  

Riverford are very supportive in helping you raise awareness once you have registered, they have supplementary information and raffle prizes available that you can use to convince other parents what a sensible idea it is to order from Riverford, after all its convenient, organic and very reasonably priced.  I really do think it’s a great idea.


To celebrate the arrival of the Riverford Veg Fund I have a large fruit and veg box to giveaway (please check they deliver to your area before entering).  If you would like to enter please fill out the form below by the 26th of October.

  130. Fruit and Vegetables :- Delicious and Nutritious. River ford Veg Fund seems like a good idea, as we do need all the assistance we can get to ensure we all eat well. Though I enjoy fruit and vegetables, it is the getting the shopping home which can be difficult, these items can be heavy. So delivery is a great bonus. Also School benefiting from Funds, may assist with a particular School project, so children can have a memorable experience etc (e.g. Maybe a trip to museum, Art Gallery, Animal Farm etc, etc)
