National Tea Day celebrated at Snakehall Farm with a brew and a Co-worker biscuit debate

Prospects Trust’s Enterprise Kitchen is about to MAKE SOME NOISE!

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.”

Leek in our Dishwasher!

We have launched our Prospects Trust Christmas 2019 Appeal live from Snakehall Farm. We have a problem with our dishwasher, find out from Co-worker Bev what’s up:

Christmas Appeal 2019 – Donate today!

If you are faced with a mountain of washing up after your Christmas feast you too will know just how we all feel at Snakehall Farm after all of our Co-workers have started their day with a vital cuppa, recharged their batteries with a warm winter lunch and finished their day with just one more tea. On top of the mountain of dishes we also have 100s of jars to sterilise for our Mamma Julie’s preserves. This daily task is usually aided with our commercial dishwasher which speeds through the washing and makes our sterilising a whizz. Unfortunately our repairman (who comes quite regularly) has told us we have worn out the dishwasher from too much work! We all know the feeling right? We are now hoping our 2020 season can be sprung into life with a no leak/no leek commercial grade dishwasher and with your help we can.

Help us repair the LEEKy leaky dishwasher at Snakehall Farm this Christmas. Donate online at: https://localgiving.org/appeal/LeekySnakehall/

A Resounding Success!

The Shovel the Hovel Project receives a boost of funding that made us all sing at Snakehall Farm this summer. The Prospects Trust received over £900 from ReSound after their beautiful summer concert. We spoke with our Trustee Jane Kershaw about her involvement with ReSound:

“I am very proud to be a member of ReSound, a 36 voice choir that performs regularly around Cambridge, singing an eclectic contemporary and traditional mix of a cappella songs from different cultures, rich in harmony and rhythm.

We have been singing together since 2010, when the choir was created by our musical Director, Rowena Whitehead.  Rowena has been called “a musical activist”, a neat phrase that sums up a thread weaving through all she does. She is a performer, a composer, a teacher, a singing leader, a facilitator who inspires everyone she works with.

She believes that singing runs deep within us all and reaches parts that nothing else touches. For Rowena singing is more than a pleasure, it’s an essential expression of life that helps individuals and communities thrive.

This is one of the things that makes Tuesday evening rehearsals so special:  we only do music that touches the heart and everyone knows each other pretty well after singing together for such a long time.

We usually sing to raise money for charitable causes, so everyone in the choir was delighted to sing for Prospects and get to know a bit about it as an organisation – and a total of £950 from the concert at St Cyriac’s was an added bonus.”
