Appeal in memory of Croots Farm Shop owner raises more than £7,000

More than £7,000 has been raised in memory of popular farm shop owner Steve Croot, who ran Croots Farm Shop near Duffield in Derbyshire with his wife Kay.

Steve died suddenly on 15th August, and his family launched a crowdfunding appeal to raise money to buy two defibrillators.

The appeal very quickly exceeded its target – allowing for a generous donation to also be made to Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre, which Steve had supported for many years, and the local St Alkmund’s Church in Duffield.
