Each of our offices globally have voted for the following charities:
Angus Soft Fruits – East Seaton – Scotland will be supporting My Name’5 Doddie Foundation
Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities.
A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.
In November 2017, Doddie and his trustees launched the registered charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Our vision is simple: A World Free of MND.
Angus Soft Fruits – Salford Priors – England will be supporting Acorns Children’s Hospice

Our dedicated teams provide specialist palliative care for babies, children and young people, and support for their families. This support is offered from our three hospices, based in Worcester, Birmingham and Walsall, and in the community.
