I WOULD like to thank Test Valley Borough Council for taking the initiative of allowing charities free access to the Andover Farmers and Crafts Market.

Charities can apply for a stall just once a year and The Boaz Project has just taken its turn.

Boaz is a small local charity providing a wide range of activities for adults with learning disabilities on a farm just south of Wherwell.

We took the opportunity to sell lots of our produce, including fresh vegetables, eggs and plants, and a number of our products, including cakes, jams, bird boxes, craft items and greetings cards. The market also gave us the opportunity to publicise what we do.

Thanks to the support from local shoppers we raised £250.

More information about The Boaz Project can be found at boazproject.co.uk.
