A Generic Photo of jam jars. If you have blackcurrants, redcurrants and gooseberries, these are perfect for jams, partly because they contain plenty of pectin, the ingredient that makes jam set See PA Feature GARDENING Gardening Column.

I make homemade jams and marmalade for Practical Action South East London Group (PASELG) and for the last three years or so, have been travelling to London by train with very heavy shopping trolleys containing my preserves, and handing the jars over to another member at King’s Cross mainline station.

Soon I will be starting to make new supplies for PASELG’s publicity stall at Peckham Rye Fete on Saturday, September 3, and hope to be there myself, in which case I can transport some jars on the day. But there will be other jars destined for this popular event that cannot be transported to London in August as I can’t travel to London every month.

I am looking for someone from Lynn or its environs who drives periodically to London (and preferably to South East London) who might be able to transport some jars for free. The jars will be wrapped well and put into a robust plastic storage box. For further information and to offer help, please call me on 01553 782959 or send an email to juanth@yahoo.co.uk
