Earlier this month staff at Ellis Jones Solicitors five offices enjoyed a variety of freshly baked pastries, breads and fruit, which was prepared and delivered by Bournemouth based charity The Crumbs Project.
The Crumbs Project works with adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and stabilized addictions helping them to achieve a life of independence. Crumbs provides a range of supported vocational training programmes, specialising in hospitality, housekeeping and administration.
Crumbs mixed ability workforce took on the challenge to make over 50 croissants, 30 cinnamon pin wheels and 45 custard tarts for the legal firms breakfast buffet. All profits made from Crumbs’ Food Services goes back into the charity to help support vulnerable adults in the community.
“All our trainees have worked extremely hard preparing the pastries to an extremely high standard,” commented Erika Sloper, Food Services Manager. “With the support from local businesses like Ellis Jones Solicitors, The Crumbs Project can continue to become a self-sufficient charity as well as providing valuable work experience for our trainees.”
Georgina Brittaina from Ellis Jones Solicitors said; “All our staff are delighted with the spread that the Crumbs team provided. We are excited to be working alongside The Crumbs Project and show our support for the wonderful work the charity does to help people overcome life challenges.”
