Visit to Bristol Reconnect

12 June - Following the handover of the Community Vehicle on Monday 16 March students from Orchard School were invited to visit the newly refurbished Café Connect at Bristol Reconnect.  The students were given the opportunity to sample some of the cakes that were on offer and were also shown how the vehicle has made an enormous difference to how the donated raw ingredients are collected for the Café.  There is also have plans to establish another training kitchen about a mile away from the café, so being able to transport goods between the two locations will be essential.

Café Connect not only provides affordable, sustainably sourced and healthy food to the wider community, it also provides training opportunities in cooking and working in a catering environment to the vulnerable adults they support.

Jonathan said "A Big Thank You to the students from Orchard School who worked on the vehicle, the staff from The Wheels Project and their  funders, Henry Smith Charity for making this possible by providing us with a fabulous van"!

Everyone enjoyed the visit and all agreed the cakes were scrummy!
