The Tiptree Strawberry Race
Vicki Michelle was the guest of honour at the Tiptree Strawberry Race this summer. The Tiptree Strawberry Race is a traditional event when pickers compete to win the title of Fastest Picker. Vicki came to Tiptree as a supporter of The Lord’s Taverners, the chosen charity for the Strawberry Race pickers and for the staff at Wilkin & Sons who all raised money for a new mini bus for Doucecroft School in Colchester. The charity aims to give children a sporting chance.
