Wow! We are so grateful to all our supporters getting us to our initial target of £7000 which will enable us to continue supporting vulnerable ladies through our 6 week work program.
Further pledges will help to support our graduates into work by funding initial bus passes, work clothes and such like. We all know how long that first month is until payday arrives!
In addition, we would also be so grateful to receive funds to continue working with young people - you may not know it, but we also provide voluntary opportunities for at risk youth at farmers markets and food fayres. This is a great way of improving self-esteem & confidence, life skills, education and employability.
On the program, they spend time in our kitchen baking, learning about food safety, catering, hospitality and volunteering.
What the young people say...
‘I enjoyed cooking, baking and making friends'
‘I enjoyed it very much’
‘I really appreciated being here’
‘My favorite thing was meeting new friends’
‘I would like the staff to know that they are amazing and have given me a great experience’
If you are able to continue giving we would really appreciate it.
