“Recruiting world class doctors across Australia”

Blugibbon’s founder is Yorkshire born and bred. He has often told his wife tales of family fruit picking as a young lad. She had never previously enjoyed the cheeky thrill of eating the fruit you have just plucked.

In the UK Sam only really remembers picking strawberries in the height of summer. (Fun Fact: Strawberries found their name by the use of straw being used to keep the berry off the ground to encourage ripening and stop damp damaging the berry).

Fruits picking locum doctors

So for Christmas 2020, their “experience present” was set, four fruit picking family dates to be redeemed over the year. The whole family would get to learn about what fruit is in season, explore a new regional NSW area and help our local Aussie farmers. Many of our locum doctors grew up in the same areas and speak passionate about supporting them.
