Last week the East Cliff Rotary Club Events Team organised a major charity event, raising over £1,500 for local Bournemouth charity, The Crumbs Project.
The Bournemouth based charity works with adults who suffer from mental health issues, learning disabilities and stabilized addiction, helping them to learn new skills and gain greater personal independence. Trainees are supported by the Crumbs Team to achieve recognized qualifications in catering, administration and housekeeping, and where appropriate on to paid or voluntary work placements.
East Cliff Rotary is supporting The Crumbs Project as one of its main charitable activities for this year and this event saw guests enjoy an evening of entertainment and fine dining at Urban Reef Boscombe. The event was kindly sponsored by Kitchen Elegance of Wimborne.
The evening was much more than just the food and wine with entertainment by Matt Black, who provided a unique mix of music and comedy. The generous donation of over £1,500 raised at the event will enable The Crumbs Project to purchase a new state-of-the-art food mixer for Crumbs’ catering training facility in Bournemouth.
Crumbs’ Operations Manager, Leanne Miller and Food Services Manager, Erika Sloper attended the fundraising evening and were presented with a cheque from East Cliff Rotary President, Keith Randall. Commenting on the Rotary’s fundraising efforts Erika said; “Thank you to East Cliff Rotary for organizing a fabulous evening in support of The Crumbs Project. Their generous donation will enable us to purchase a brand-new food mixer for our trainees to create some delicious recipes and progress their catering skills.”
Keith Randall commented; “We are delighted to be able to help The Crumbs Project and support the valuable work they do with vulnerable adults in our community.”
