We set up a café in a blacksmiths shop ready for the private Steam enthusiast event last weekend. The weather was very kind to us and we had lots of very nice customers. Thank you to all of our very kind cake and soup makers for your very kind donations.
We asked for donations of cakes for a private event last weekend to help us fundraise for our charity. This amazing cake which has our charity logo on was made by Julie Moore and donated by Paul Greenan.
This was one of many donations of cakes made for the event and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took time to bake for us and help us raise money and awareness for our charity.
Pictures from our allotment open day. John can be seen showing David Chapman (one of our volunteers) around our plot, as well as lots of pictures of our produce and beautiful flowers.
We are delighted to have won the cup for best overall plot - we will receive the cup at the September prize giving buffet evening.
This is just one days pickings of some of the produce from our charity allotment. Our allotment is a great way for our young people to learn how to be a little self-sufficient.
A massive thank you to ALFRESCO-Domestic window cleaning, who are donating a free window cleaning service to both of our charity houses every three months.
A warm welcome to our new support worker Paul McMullen, he will be working with our young people at our two charity houses.
Our young people have been working hard on the charity allotment the last couple of months and its really paying off. It's not all work though - this is our young peoples idea of a joke, it's Patsy and John at our charity allotment :)
It was another one of our residents 19th birthday last Wednesday and we were once again delighted to be able to give him an amazing cake, thanks to 'Free Cakes for Kids Reading'.
Our young resident loved the cake, especially as it was made to look like a pug dog - which are his favourite. We want to say a massive thank you to Erika who organised and baked the cake for us.
We were at Cheryl and Fred's private steam event on Monday, where we served refreshments and homemade cakes to around 60 people. It was a lovely evening with some lovely generous people.
We would like to thank everyone who baked and donated cakes for us to serve at the event, in return we received donations for our charity of £153.
