Marmalade’s social media:

Our heart's been warmed watching this film about Gavin and Julie striking up a friendship.

With the extra time over the bank holiday, who could you spend some time with?


BBC Three@bbcthree

Gavin is 25. Julie is 76. They met by chance in a market four years ago and they've had each other's backs since.

You might not have heard from us in a while because here at Marmalade Trust we've been busy making marmalade - we've missed you! 🧡

But now we're back and have some exciting projects coming up.

Keep your eyes open on how to get involved...
