How it will benefit your local community

We want to equip our Community Kitchen with the basics to enable us to run a variety of cooking, baking and decorating classes for people from all backgrounds, abilities and ages in our local community. A recent survey showed significant interest in learning cooking skills and our July School Holiday pilot cooking classes (which we ran with borrowed equipment) were such a hit that one session sold out! It is clear that our community wants to learn this vital life skill which we wish to empower.
