Five entrepreneurial friends got their heads together and recently came up with an idea for raising much-needed funds for the Milton Ulladulla Cancer Outpatients' Appeal.

David and Meruys Freeman grow organically fertilised plum trees on their property off Wheelbarrow Road and, coupled with Betty White's selling skills and Bette and Bruce Buckingham's jam-making skills, the friends set to work to raise funds.

Betty and David picked the plum trees bare and left them in the capable hands of Bette and Bruce.
