BELLIS Farm Shop and Garden Centre in Holt has joined forces with Nightingale House Hospice to create a stylish shopping bag.

Made from jute, a natural fibre produced from sustainable resources in India, the bag carries the slogan: Carry me with care in English and Welsh.

Bellis’s is a long-standing supporter of the hospice and, as well as the new shopping bag, it will be repeating its Christmas grotto this year from Saturday, November 28, to Sunday, December 21, 10am-4pm. Last year it raised more than £6,000.

Owner Joan Bellis said: “We decided to do the shopping bags in response to the move towards providing our customers with an opportunity to ‘bag it’ in an eco-friendly way while at the same time supporting Nightingale House.”

The farm shop is also stocking a selection of hospice Christmas goodies and cards. The bags are £3.99 with all proceeds going to the hospice.
