Morrisons Wisbech has donated an apple tree to Gorefield Primary School for them to plant and grow their own apples.
Morrisons community champion Deborah Thulborn delivered the three-year-old British apple tree sapling to the children with Sam Stapleton this afternoon.
It was delivered along with two crates of apples so that “children have a chance to taste the fruit which the tree will eventually produce”.
Deborah said: “We hope our British apple tree will be a lovely addition to Gorefield’s school orchard.
“We hope that the children will enjoy watering, pruning and looking after it whilst it grows - and that it bears much fruit for Gorefield school pupils for many years to come.”
