Homeless young people and parents from our nursery have been treated to a delicious meal and expert cooking tips from a Saturday Kitchen regular thanks to one of the Centre’s relationships with generous companies.
Companies not only help us financially, they also provide skills and expertise that enhance our many services. Standard Chartered Bank support our employment team with employment days and placements; five of our clients have found permanent work as a direct result! Around 50 employees from Grosvenor Estates helped make sure the nursery and hostel was full of Christmas cheer. And Ember Yard, the newest venture of the Salt Yard restaurant group, have been adding an optional £1 to all bills, so far raising over £15,000 to support food based projects at the Centre.
Bianca, 17, lives in our hostel for homeless young people: “The food was amazing. I loved it! I can’t wait to get the recipe and cook it for my friends in the hostel.”
Ben clearly enjoyed the experience and was already asking about how he and Salt Yard can help the Cardinal Hume Centre even more.
To celebrate their first year of supporting the Centre, Ember Yard have kindly offered a complementary glass of fizz on arrival to anyone who mentions the Cardinal Hume Centre when making a booking (valid until 30/6/2015).
Partnerships like these are highly valuable to the Centre. To celebrate our existing corporate partnerships and create new ones, we have launched Foot in the Door. Please take a moment to read about this initiative.
