Local charity The Crumbs Project welcomed a number of local figures and businesses to their first impact event at
their training facility in Bournemouth. Guests enjoyed canapes and other refreshments prepared and served by Crumbs trainees.
The purpose of the event was to inform the audience about the positive impact the charity has had on the local community, especially those with learning disabilities, mental health issues and stabilized addictions. The event was also an opportunity to build stronger ties with the local business community, as well as giving potential funders and referral agencies an insight into the charity and how they can support the Project moving forward.
After a welcome from Douglas Eyre, The Crumbs Project Chairman Training Manager, Ursula Boardman provided an update on the Project’s training scheme and links with local employers.
This was followed by Food Services Manager, Erika Sloper who gave an overview of Crumbs’ commercial offering, whilst Operations Manager Leanne Miller informed guests of volunteering and Trustee opportunities within the charity.
Guests also heard from two of the Project’s current trainees, who shared their experiences and how they’ve benefited from the training they have received.
“We held this event as an opportunity to build closer links with local businesses and to inform them about the pioneering work of The Crumbs Project. It was great to see so many in attendance,” said Leanne Miller, Operations Manager at The Crumbs Project in Bournemouth.
