Crumbs! That's terrific charitable support by Vespasian Lodge!!

Vespasian Lodge recently held a 'race night' at Branksome Masonic Hall, attended by a number of members, family and friends and were able to support local, worthy charitable causes, including The Crumbs Project.

The Crumbs Project was founded by the late Anne Gardner, whose daughter Liz at the age of 17 started hearing voices which tormented her for the rest of her adult life. Crumbs sprang from the need for those in long-stay care to have a structured programme of support to encourage their learning and professional development.

The Crumbs Project is charity which provides supported vocational training for adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and stabilised addictions. It specialises in vocational training within the hospitality, catering, housekeeping and administration sectors. The Crumbs team works closely with trainees supporting them into either paid or voluntary work placements.

In order for The Crumbs Project to become a self-sufficient charity, the team also provide a wide range of food services, including; buffets, hot food, cakes, snack pack and wedding catering. Their ultimate aim is to help vulnerable people live a life of independence.

Vespasian Lodge was pleased to support the Crumbs Project with a donation of £275 which was presented by Steve Spender to Leanne Miller (Operations Manager) who was accompanied by other members of her team and some of the Trainees from the training centre.
