SSA fundraising dinner hosted by Yeo Valley

12 September 2019

A heartfelt thank you from the whole SSA team for helping us to make Thursday night's event such a success. 
We couldn't have done it without your invaluable support, including all you've given over the last two years that has brought us to this point.

We see the night as a celebration of the community we've created, progress made so far and the commitment to continue working together to achieve healthy, sustainable soils across the UK.  
In particular we would like to give a huge thank you to our partners and supporters, Yeo Valley, who were so instrumental in the establishment of the SSA. We were delighted to be able to host you all in their beautiful canteen and want to thank them for their ongoing support and generosity.
Thanks to local producers Equinox Kombucha, Juniper Gin, Aldwick Estate Wine, Lye Cross Dairy and Homewood Cheeses. We were also pleased to announce our new partnership with the Real Olive Company whose delicious olives perfectly complemented our welcome cocktails.

Weleda supplied goody bags and we'd like to thank Neals Yard, SoilBioLab, Riverford, Craig Sams & CarbonGold, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Eden Project, Knepp Estate, George Monbiot, Pukka Teas, Salina Jane Art, Huskup, the Wave, Somerset Wildlife Trust, Sarah & Clive Warren, the Horticultural Trades Association, Ted Green and Peter Gabriel for the fantastic array of raffle and auction prizes.

Your contributions made all the difference, doubling funds raised on the night to over £20,000.

This will go towards the continuation of our soil health projects linked with the supply chain, carbon sequestration and climate change, biodiversity and more.
Thank you to our star speaker, Tim Smit, who provided enlightening words of wisdom as always; and to our auctioneer Tim Hector (Cooper & Tanner) who did us proud with an entertaining and at times off the wall auction experience! 
Big thanks also to our wonderful photographer Tory.

Finally, huge thanks to all who hosted tables, namely Yeo Valley, Burges Salmon, Triodos Bank, Weleda, Pukka and the Real Olive Company; we were delighted to catch up with familiar faces, meet new people and start conversations that we hope to continue over the foreseeable future. If you have anything you would like to add please don't hesitate to get in touch.
See you next time! Until then, warmest wishes from us all at the SSA.

Ellen, Matthew, Nev, Kevin and Ursula
