SuperSpud Competition

Would you like to grow a bumper potato crop AND help farmers in Ethiopian communities at the same time? Southwell Methodist Church invites you to enter its Superspud Potato Growing Competition! Fill in the entry form on the back and we’ll provide the seed potatoes so that you can get growing!!

In doing so you’ll be helping families like Fikerte’s, who farms in the village of Cherkos. Fikerte struggles to feed her family from year to year due to the unpredictability of growing conditions. Her crops can be wiped out by inconsistent and unpredictable weather conditions rainfall or pests and diseases but your donations could provide special Superspud seeds that are resilient and can give them a bumper crop too!

You'll need to download and print the entry form below which has all the details you need and drop it into the box in Southwell Library (or bring it to one of the services at the church) before 3rd February 2020. We'll then provide you with 5 seed potatoes which you'll need to collect from the church (details on the entry form) in exchange for a suggested £1 donation. (All proceeds to potato appeal.) Then it's up to you to grow your crop, from those seed potatoes in whatever way you want and bring them to the weight-in at SMC on 4th July 2020. So get your entry form in and get growing!
