Some £2,687 was raised for the organisation, which is currently runs courses for people who have faced homelessness, to help them develop the skills and experience needed for jobs in the food and hospitality industries.

It also offers help to its trainees find long-term accommodation and access other support. The organisation provides work experience opportunities on its stall at Norwich Market and in its growing corporate catering business. And it is also seeking funding to create a training space to teach barista and customer services skills.

Matt Townsend, who took over as chief executive in May, said: “We are over the moon with this funding. We aim to take people off the street and into the kitchen and are reliant on the support of people who fundraise for us and use our catering services.

“This funding is extremely useful and will help us to build upon our successful food training and to expand in to barista and customer services training. This will help us train more people in skills which are in great demand and to help our trainees get in to work. This money will change lives and create opportunities.”
