Cooking For Fun
10:00am - 12:00 noon
Cooking For Fun is our weekly cookery class which runs every Monday from 10:00am - 12:00 noon. It is taught by our volunteer Cheryl Clarke who recently won our Volunteer of the Year award 2019 and who has also bee shortlisted for the Volunteering and Voluntary Sector Awards 2019.
"At Cooking For Fun sometimes we cook a sweet dish sometimes we cook a savoury dish but it’s not all about cooking; there is the social side of it also as a lot of people don’t manage to get out and socialise. A few of the members who come to the group say that they would just stay at home and watch telly and be eating snacks and junk food if they weren’t coming along to my class." Cheryl
Members of the cooking class receiving their certificate of achievement at the Christmas meal 2018 which they also cooked themselves.
Everyone is welcome at the Cooking For Fun class – often people come along with their carers to the group – there is no referral system. However the group operates an over 18 age policy as the students will be using sharp knives.
The class is £2.50 per week and all the ingredients are provided for cooking a savoury meal or sweet which can be taken home. All provided in a welcoming and friendly environment.
