August 2011 - jules & sharpie join the family
We are delighted to announce that Thursday Cottage has purchased the jules & sharpie brand. Currently Thursday Cottage makes several of the jules & sharpie range and the remaining production will move to Trewlands Farm in late September.
Julie Field and Frances Hopewell-Smith (the co-founders of jules & sharpie) will still be part of the business in the future, where they will be involved with the expansion and development of the brand.
Julie and Frances started the business in 2002 in their home kitchens, using a friend's traditional Jamaican recipe for hot pepper jelly, and have built the range to the current total of 12 hot and sticky 'preservaments'. They will all make a wonderful addition to the products we already offer.
As from Monday October 3rd, all orders and production will move to Thursday Cottage. If you do not already stock these wonderful products, we very much hope you will do so in the future. It's a brand we all very much admire here at Thursday Cottage HQ.
Charity Donation - Havens Hospices 12 Days of Christmas
Instead of sending Christmas cards this year, Thursday Cottage Ltd will be making a £150 charity donation to Havens Hospice '12 Days of Christmas' fundraising event. Along with other businesses in Essex, Thursday Cottage is delighted to help make Christmas special for the children and adults cared for at Havens Hospices.
Havens Hospices offers respite breaks, manages pain and cares for children and adults at the end of their lives. That care is free of charge but the charity must raise over £100,000 every week, which makes fundraising events like this so important.
