Fundraising in the community
At The Watercress Company we have always prided ourselves in what we can do for the local community; from bags of watercress for the village fete to large events raising significant contributions.
We have some key charities and also sponsor specific events such as school trips for The Thomas Hardye School; the Dorchester Marathon with the Rotary and The Watercress Festival that raised essential funds for Joe Glover Trust. Where possible we offer talks or presentations to local groups and charities and any contributions are passed onto our principle charities.
