Tutti Fruiti, you beauty – Wythenshawe jam and preserve maker Duerr’s has raised an amazing £40,000 for charity at its annual themed ball.
The money was raised at the Tutti Fruiti 1950s themed evening held at The Mere resort in Cheshire last month, with funds going to The Joshua Tree charity.
A packed room of 350 plus guests – many in fancy dress – enjoyed an evening of all things 1950s rock ‘n’ roll, with more than a few nods towards Duerr’s own fruity jams and marmalades.
Hosted by radio presenter Mark Radcliffe, patron of The Joshua Tree, guests dug deep for a variety of money-can’t-buy auction and raffle prizes.
Reflecting on the success of the 18th charity ball held by the company, director of marketing, (Little) Richard Duerr, says: “We’re blown away by the success of the ball yet again.
“We would like to thank our extended family of friends, colleagues and suppliers for continuing to support us and our charity efforts.
“We chose The Joshua Tree charity this year, which helps families in the North West affected by childhood cancer. They are reliant on donations from the public to be able to offer their services free of charge to the 80 families and growing, who access their services during an incredibly traumatic time. All the money raised from the ball will go towards helping them continue their amazing work.”
Joshua Hill, who the charity is named after, was at the ball with his parents Lynda and David. David says: “Every penny raised will make a massive difference to families going through the experience of childhood cancer. We would like to say a massive thank you to Duerr’s and everyone who attended and supported the ball – it was a brilliant night.”
We always love to read your comments about our jams and marmalades, especially when you love them as much as we do. So we thought we would share a few of our favourite reviews!
Congrats to Stella Noble the October winner of our monthly creative competition. Her genius use of our gorgeous globe jars for gifting succulents won her our brand new range of marmalades and conserves!

Well done Stella!
Ahead of Halloween next week, why not create your own spooky lanterns by painting our gorgeous globe jars. We particularly like the creepy pumpkins!
Here at Duerr’s, we have so much pride in all our products that it always makes us smile when we hear how much you love them too.
This year we have got off to a terrific start receiving some really lovely emails that have certainly brightened our day, so we thought we would share some of the love…

“To the Marketing Director,
Wonderful new jar and packaging and a wonderful product – superb!!! – well done!”
“Not only do I like your thick cut marmalade, I think the top on the jar is ingenious!
Well done – particularly to a company that’s just “round the corner” so to speak!
To try it for yourself visit Tesco and Sainsbury’s
“We purchased a pot of your Peamutt Butter from Pets At Home to put in a kong for our Jack Russell just to try it out and ever since he just cannot get enough and sits by the cupboard and cries until he gets it every night.
Please don’t ever stop selling it.”
Why not treat your four legged friend to a jar from Pets At Home
