Cornish community supports adventure centre’s cooking project

A brand new kitchen facility, which will be used to teach disabled and disadvantaged people how to cook and take care of themselves, is set to be ready for use by Christmas in Cornwall.

Custom built kitchens from Cheshire to Cornwall can be used to enhance and improve the skills of cooking enthusiasts, as well as those in need of extra help in this department, which is why the local community is supporting the project.

The BF Adventure outdoor activity centre in Halvasso is being built and installed by a number of tradesmen and suppliers in Cornwall. It has also recently been given a cash boost of £2,000 from the Lizard Rotary Group, which will help the project come to fruition.

A generous local company supplied the kitchen’s frame and their own labour, which included ten members of staff, for free, which meant that the structure was up and in place within only a few hours.

Speaking about the generosity displayed, the chief executive of BF Adventures, Adrian Richards, told West Briton:

“The donation has really made this project a reality and the entire team gave up their Saturday to erect the frame in record time… The Rotary Clubs and ladies of the Inner Wheel have given us incredible support with this project in monetary value, volunteering time and donations. We could not have done it without them.”

Once the kitchen build is complete, the charity will be able to improve upon its existing programme and teach even more of their clients the skills that they need to be more independent.
