Our Enterprise Kitchen at Snakehall Farm is going to transform Learning Disability Work Based support one vegan roll at a time thanks to a grant from Global Make Some Noise this springtime.
The Prospects Trust is a very lucky recipient of both a project and a core grant from Global Make Some Noise, which is going to help develop work based learning and catering kitchen skills development for young people with additional needs and/or autism.
Global’s Make Some Noise, the official charity of the Media & Entertainment group Global, has distributed grants to 60 small charities and projects across the UK following its determined fundraising efforts in 2021. Thanks to the incredible generosity of listeners across Global’s radio brands – Capital, Heart, LBC, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold, The Prospects Trust located in Cambridgeshire has received £45,000 from Global’s Make Some Noise to support its vital work to provide meaningful work and support to people with additional needs.
The money granted to The Prospects Trust will fund the development of The Enterprise Kitchen a training kitchen at Snakehall Farm, creating 1 part time job and providing new placement opportunities for people with additional needs and enable life-changing benefits to families and individuals in the local community. It will also cover the cost of a programme of community and volunteer events hosted at Snakehall Farm throughout 2022.
Maz Baker, Strategic Development Manager at The Prospects Trust said “The past two years our rural local charity has had to really dig deep to survive to thrive, with all the challenges thrown at our care farm by the pandemic, this boost from Global’s Make Some Noise, is going to get us back on track, transforming lives differently and growing opportunity for our Co-workers, people with additional needs. Spring has sprung at Snakehall Farm thanks to this grant”.
Now in its eighth year of service, Global’s Make Some Noise has supported over 400 local charities whose remarkable work has helped a total of 150,000 people across the UK. The money raised has paid for food banks, befriending projects for the elderly and isolated, cancer wellbeing programmes, domestic abuse refuges, employment training and physical therapy for people with disabilities.
Emma Bradley, Director of Global Goodness at Global said: “It’s been an incredibly tough couple of years for everyone. With the cost of living continuing to increase many more people will turn to local groups for help, putting extra strain on their resources. So we’re pleased to be able to help small charities at the centre of communities and will continue to raise money and awareness for their vital work.”
