Local Bournemouth charity The Crumbs Project have teamed up with the Daily Echo once again to offer free cupcakes with every newspaper purchased at this year’s Taste of the South festival.
The Bournemouth based charity supports adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and stabilized addictions by providing training for employment. Crumbs offers a place for vulnerable people to learn practical skills in catering, administration and housekeeping within a supported learning environment.
Trainees will be preparing over 800 cupcakes in preparation for the two-day event. Bookers wholesalers in Yeoman’s Way have donated the ingredients required to create the delicious treats.
Crumbs volunteers will be joining the Bournemouth Echo team at their stand at Chapel Gate in Christchurch on 21st July. All Daily Echo customers will receive a bottle of water, goodie bag and a FREE cupcake courtesy of the Crumbs Project.
Food Services Manager for The Crumbs Project, Erika Sloper commented, “We’re so pleased to be working with the Bournemouth Echo once again at yet another well-attended local event. Taste of the South is a culinary extravaganza, which celebrates a wide range of local produce and we are proud to be supporting this year’s festival.”
This will be the second year the Taste of the South festival has taken place, which celebrates all things from across the South. Visitors will be entertained with local bands, live music throughout the day and have the opportunity to taste a wide variety of local produce. Exhibitors will be showcasing a unique array of products, from cheese and chutneys to local wines and delicious ice creams.
