This month we have launched an urgent appeal to raise funds for a much needed new cooker in our community kitchen. Our old one really is on its last legs – and because food is at the centre of so many CTC groups, its replacement is vital. It will help us to keep running the cookery classes and recipe shares and the communal sit-down meals that so many of you love! Our last CTC Saturday Club raised a fantastic £91.91 in donations for the fund, so thank you and well done to all those who contributed. We have a target of £1,000 – quite a challenge – to buy and fit a big new one that works! Keep track of the fund as at fills with the centres fundraising thermometer display which will mark the milestones as your donations come in. Thank you for giving what you are able. Every penny counts and together we will get there. And let’s raise a glass to the coming of our new cooker!
