HOADS Farm, at Broad Oak Brede, is donating money from eggs sold to help fund the Sussex Air Ambulance.

For every dozen free range eggs sold, Hoads Farm will donate 1p.

Their eggs are on sale at Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons.

Hoads company director Adrian Potter said: “Air ambulances provide a vital service and we’re incredibly proud to be supporting them.

“Knowing that we are helping to keep the ambulances airborne is a fantastic feeling.”

Lynne Harris, Director of Income Generation for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, said: “We are delighted to be working with Hoads Farm.

“Their support will not only give us profile across the counties but also raise valuable funds for the charity so that we can continue to help those seriously ill or injured people who need our services, 24 hours a day.”

The partnership coincides with Hoads Farm having recently completed work on their new state-of-the-art packing centre and grading facilities at Broad Oak.

All of their eggs are produced under the BEIC Lion Quality and RSPCA Freedom Foods Welfare standard and they remain committed to higher welfare standards through their policy of only ever selling free range eggs.

Hoads Farm at 42 acres is one of the few remaining traditional Sussex farms with its ancient hedgerows, ditch system and original small paddocks still intact.

References to land called Hoads can be found in this area as far back as the early 1600’s. The name Hoads is derived from Baron de Hoades, a French knight granted the Rape of Hastings by William the Conqueror.
